Re: DXView 1.2.6 regression

You can enter lat/lon directly; enter an angle (e.g. 24 12'N ) and then
strike the Enter key.

Hiding the map is certainly feasible; I'd have to find room for a button
that toggles between ShowMap and HideMap, as use of this function seems to
frequent for the Config window. Interest in the map will also increase once
SpotCollector starts plotting spots there.

In the non-map portion of DXView's window, about half the space is taken up
with control labels and associated whitespace; would an "expert view"
lacking this nicety be a reasonable alternative?

Dave,

I use most of the fields as they are with the exception of region
and time. I would like to see the ability to enter Lat/Lon and
calculate the heading. I monitor the Maritime Mobile Service net
and often boats give their position in Lat/Lon and it would be
helpful to be able to enter that and point the beam at them. I
like the map the way it is but one possibility might be to put it
into a separate window with a button to display it. Then the
control portion of the program would occupy less than half of the
current screen real estate.
