|Product Version||4.1 SVN|
|Target Version||4.2||Fixed in Version||4.1 SVN|
|Summary||0001918: crosshair issue in display-finder circle menu. Issue appears on screen and another anomaly well as print|
|Description||issue1 in print- offset of crosshairs position with fov circles-- In display both appears concentric but in print they are offset. Found it in print while making new nova finder chart. Placed 5 deg and 1 deg fov circles. Had centre of chart marked.|
issue2 on screen- In menu, 'Mark centre of chart' and 'Add crosshair centre of chart' do not work independently. Have to check Mark centre of chart to have add crosshairs. Unchecking 'Mark centre of chart' I'm not sure if mark centre of chart alone should add selected fov circle(as it happens curretly) or should have added additional centre marking.
|Steps To Reproduce||Add any finder circles with mark centre of chart and add crosshairs to centre of chart. keep header footer in print setting checked. Print to pdf. Observe anomaly in exported pdf that circles are offset w.r.to crosshairs running across chart|
Observe onscreen chart behavior of setting- Setup>Display> Finder circle(eyepiece)- and toggling Mark centre of chart and Add crosshairs to centre of chart.

I confirm the crosshair for the chart center is offset when printing.
Removing the header and footer fix the problem, so this is related to how this cross is positioned relative to the canvas border.
Crosshair can only be added when the mark is active, this is why it is labeled 'Add crosshair centre of chart' but not 'Mark centre of chart with crosshair'.
I will change the setup screen to disable it when 'Mark centre of chart' is not checked.
If you want only the crosshair just uncheck every circle.
Thanks a lot for reply.
Absolutely love the skycharts over any other application especially considering the incorporation of large catalogs & databases like NOMAD, GAIA as soon as they were released. Using it since more than a decade and it always exceeded expectations and my observing capability.
The printing feature is the best i've ever seen and star dial style 'orient to pole' feature is also too good for training new students of astronomy by printing handouts of circular sky chart.
Thanks for everything.
The crosshair center is now fixed:
This will be in tomorrow beta version.
