Oh, that's what I've been suggesting for a long time and what I'm waiting for:)

  Temat: Re: [Loadstone] More questions...


  In the route mode (when ever it is implemented), there should perhaps be an option to record the route for the first time automatically so that it can be used later. For instance when I start from a particular location, Loadstone can automatically save points at regular intervals as well as when the direction changes. I am not sure how practical it is though...

    On an uninstall all the data, settings, keymaps, databases etc. should
    remain intact. When you install another version if it's installed to the
    same place as the previous version things should just work as normal. At
    least this should be the case between 0.68 and 0.69, this isn't always the
    case as sometimes file formats may change but this is rare.
    As for checkpoints, your best bet would be to have separate files for
    different routes if the routes have overlapping points. At the moment
    there's no way to select a destination point, loadstone just figures out
    what checkpoint you're currently heading towards if any. We are planning a
    route mode (or whatever it'll be called) at some point but we have to figure
    out how this will work.
