[Loadstone] Inconsistency in Creating/Loading a Database

I just noticed this, and I think it's not consistent with standard 

When I go to Load Database and select "new database" and give it a name, I 
fully expect that once created, that new database is now active.

However according to the user guide it is not. I must next go back to Load 
Database and load the newly-created database.

Why not just conform to standard practice and enable the newly-created 
database to be the now-active database? In other words, why would I go to 
the trouble of creating a new database if I wasn't going to be putting it to 
immediate use by importing or adding?

Compare that to creating a new document in Notepad. When I assign a new 
filename to a document I would not expect to have to then go to the file 
menu and load that document before editing it, would I?

Just a suggestion for the next build.

Subject: [Loadstone] Route Generator From Google Maps

Does anybody on this list have the code for the route generator from Google
Maps?  If so, I would be happy to look into putting it on one or two
websites I have related to my hike of the Appalachian Trail.  Alternatively,
could this be set up as an off-line tool?

Thank You,
