Hello Alvin, thank you for the feedback, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the saving problem till now. I will try and figure out a way to save the route type information. Add: Sorry, the GUI design features in the API are just too limited to do what your asking. If you wish to discuss it further please contact me through the mailing list or the forums.

A great program - the only reason why I didn't give it a five is because I can't save the routes :( Can this be fixed in the next version? (I notice that the jump points are saved...) Also, it would be convenient to fix the same color & line thickness for a given route, so the user can change it himself. (So different colours, etc can be coded for different ship journeys, trade routes, etc.) Finally, if a given route type would automatically have the same colour, line pattern, and thickness, it would be helpful! ==============
That way, I could arrange routes like: *** Scout route (type) * ISS Auora (name) * 'three-dash, 1 thickness, sky blue' (visual) *** Scout route (type) * ISS Columbus (name) * 'three-dash, 1 thickness, sky blue' (visual) (Note that I can just reuse the previous saved pattern) *** Heavy Scout Cruiser (type) * ISS Imperial Reaumur (name) * 'three-dash, 2 thickness, sky blue' (visual) (pattern saved under a new type) *** Patrol route (type) * ISS Bard Endeavor (name) * 'four-dash, 2 thickness, dark green' (visual) (ditto) *** Patrol route (type) * ISS Sparkling Distress (name) * 'four-dash, 2 thickness, dark green' (visual) (reused previous saved pattern) ======================= Thanks for your hard work - I hope to see the improvements soon! Sorry about the bad editing, but I can't find a way to make paragraphs and proper spacing with this editor :(
