Once I get settled in, I have the intention of solving some of the issues. It is interesting, some things that does not work on my Mac, works on iOS and visa versa, so I have found myself having subsurface open on my iPad and my Mac.

I frequently dive in the same location with 3 different clubs/shops and I would like to be able to see the differences e.g. in quality. It is of course to violate “Dive master” to e.g. “iSub/Antonio”, but would it not be nice to have this info as a separate field ?

I sort by “Dive Master”, should group when there is a break and add a short summary line. That would enable us to look at how different Dive masters perform ?

> The filter tool is incredibly useful. One can filter your favourite divemaster by selecting the right name in the persons list in the filter. On the other hand, the tags are also very useful. Create a tag for your dive club and you could filter all the dives for that dive club from the dive list. Not quite as sophisticated as having all the info in the dive list, but a superb tool to select specific dives from the dive list. For my needs this is quite adequate.

Thanks for telling me about the filter tool, it is really powerful and it really does what I wanted.

In other words, forget about me idea to enhance the dive list, it is already enhanced !
