Dirk, to be honest, They should be numbered? For as far as I am
concerned, I number my dives always in my logbook. And the dives in
Subsurface are having the same numbers... So, numbering dives,
consistent with the paper logbook, is, in my humble opinion, the only
right way to do?

So, ALWAYS number the dives = good plan!
