Ok, this is getting better. That said, when you add a gas by hand, it
doesn't get added to the list of gases, so the next waypoint you can't
just select it again. So the drop-down selection isn't very useful.

But the worst part about any of these interfaces is how you can't fix
mistakes. I think it would be lovely if it showed the dive as you add
way-points, so that you can edit it. As it is, now you press "OK", and
the end result looks bad, and there's no good way to go back and edit

I dunno. And I do think the input fields are much too big. I suspect
they don't need individual labeling. Just once at the top? That was
one of the things I liked about the treeview, even if it then sucked
in so many other ways.
