[Loadstone] Questions

Hi all, 

The below email also made me think of a question. When creating a point
and you label it and press options, there is an option in that menu
called "from commencement". What does this option do and when would you
want to use it.

Many thanks,
 BTW I have borrowed a friends GPS receiver for the week and have been
madly playing with loadstone and am quite impressed with what it can do.
I labelled a point at the exit to my local train station and when coming
home today Loadstone said the exit was to my left. It's usually to the
right and I thought it was being effected by storm clouds, but loadstone
was correct, not me, Boo Hoo!. A GPS receiver is next on my shopping
list, then a donation to Loadstone. Thanks for making this available to
us all. 

Many thanks,

You can delete a point by going to exploration mode, moving to the
hit key 1 and select the functions menu, then scroll down to delete
it's quite a few options down. Then you'll be asked to confirm that you
to delete the point. If so, hit yes and that's it.
You can keep your maps separate by creating another database. To do this
to the file menu and select load database. If you want to create a new
database then select new file and give it a name. To load an existing 
database just choose the file from the list.
