Guiding "Nearest" incorrectly forces guiding to normal
« on: April 06, 2011, 14:20:36 »
Locus Pro, version 1.4.0

The new guiding command "Nearest" incorrectly forces Guiding On Reverse back to Guiding On.

How to recreate the problem:
  - Create a track (straigt lines) with some few points.
  - Select Guide On Reverse.
  - Move map center closer to another point on the track but with a distance > Guiding/"Set next point".
  - Tap the new command "Nearest". Guiding correctly selects the new track point.
  - Next step goes wrong: move map center closer than Guiding/"Set next point". Guiding incorrectly jumps FORWARD to the next point as if Guiding On were active. It should jump BACK since Guiding On Reverse is active.

If you do not use the "Nearest" command, the Guide On Reverse jumps correctly backward on the track as you get within the Guiding/"Set next point" distance. So it is clear that it is the "Nearest" command that forces the guiding to normal (Guide On).

ah sorry that's possible. Hmm all this around guiding along track look weird for me and it really need some new mechanism. I have to think about it a little. Maybe create new bottom panel for guiding along track, maybe just update list in context menu ... Anyway thanks for error report!
