May I make a suggestion for reorganising the View main menu item?
Curremtly it has
My question is: Is there any use at all in being to see the Divelist
only by itself? Without at least one of the other helper panels one
cannot do any work with the Divelist alone, one can only look at the list.
Similarly if one views the Dive Notes panel in isolation, there is
abolutely nothing to be gained by viewing it by itself, except if you
have copied a mammoth article into the bottom Notes field. Viewing this
panel full-screen does not reveal any information or provide any
functionality that does not exist in the View All mode.
For the other two panels, there may be some divers out there who would
like to view the marble panel by itself, or the dive profile by itself.
My suggestion for sensible combinations are:
DiveList + DiveNotes panel [This allows one to inspect, say, the
equipment or notes during several dives]
DiveList + DiveProfile [This allows one to inspect dive profile
characteristics for several dives]
DiveProfile [The most useful would probably be
while doing hand-entered data or dive planning (V4.1!!) full-screen]
Globe [For those who want to spin the
globe to where they have dived all over the world]
