I'm not sure if you received my reply (from progalski at plusnet.pl, mobile phone), but if not, I would like to write, that you have solved my problem:) Thank so much for help and congratulations for success:)
Now I can load checkpoints, I can check my points regardless of the status of the GPS receiver, I can take full advantage from "Use Checkpoints only" and "Isolate Checkpoints" modes; additionally, I really like the announcements that these modes are checked/unchecked and enabled/disabled; I also noticed that folder name Pointlists has been changed into "Checkpoints" which is logical.
To sum up, I am really impressed and thankful for so many improvements made in only four days:)
