I can change the coordinates of a cache in Locus, and the red star is shown on top of the icon.
When I export this cache from Locus to my PC, I find that there is a "Final" waypoint after the end of the cache's description.
If I delete the cache from Locus and then import the exported GPX file, NO RED STAR is indicated  :'(

I would like to import into Locus my solved mysteries, so that the red star differentiates solved mysteries from field puzzles (same questionmark icon)

weird, I'm testing it and it works for me

are you importing exported file menu > more > import? From some SD card (local) directory?

Yes, no red star.
The cache does have a "Final" waypoint when I check from the cache listing.
But I have noticed that when the red star is shown, there is no extra waypoints in the listing.

Are there some settings that could affect this? "Load all waypoints immediately"? (I don't use this, it clutters the map too much)

Thanks, that did it!

Locus has been working so well for me, that I haven't needed to change the settings for at least a few months.
