Summary0001985: Fix on coordinates
DescriptionWhen I move to a specified position by "View -> Position" menu I would like to have the window locked on those coordinates, just like when I fix on a object.
If it's possible, it would also be nice to have those coordinates act as an object, so I can use the measure tool to measure distances from that point.
TagsNo tags attached.

You can add a "User object" (setup/catalog/user defined object) instead of setting the position and you can do all of this.
But this is more operation.

Maybe this can be done by automatically adding a temporary "user object" when you set the position?

Yes, a temporary user object created whenever a user manually set a position would be great! And it would be better to lock the chart on that position, so that changing zoom or time doesn't move the chart from the specified position.

I implement this function without using a user object because this can make undesired effect by activating this objects when they are not.

A first change add a checkbox in the Position window to lock the chart at this position, so you can choose to lock or not.
If locked the position remain and you can slew the telescope or add this position to the observing list:

A second change make the distance measurement to always start with the locked object if any:
