The way you'd do this today is clumsy: adjust the start time of the planned dive to match the start of the actual dive. Then merge the two dives.

Can you say more about this - I don't think I fully understand what you are trying to explain here.

> I would like the ability to save the plan from a previously completed dive currently it appears that I need to edit the dive in the planner which gives me the plan and completed profile in the editor (I like this view) and then save as new, however this gives a copy of the entire plan+completed profile and I would like to separate the plan so that I can reuse it

Again, I'm not sure what you mean by this - but maybe it makes more sense to Robert and some of the others who have designed the existing behavior

That's surprising as it uses the exact same software stack. Given that BLE download on Windows is fairly unreliable, could this just be a temporary issue? I.e., have you tried un-pairing and re-pairing the Shearwater?

> I have just started to use the mobile version on android along with the Windows desktop, both synchronized through the cloud storage (This worked perfectly), I would like to request that the dive list on Android behave similar to the dive list on the desktop. On android multiple profiles of the same dive appear separately in the list where as on the desktop they are behind a single dive number. I think my preference would be for them to appear similar to the desktop version although I would like the ability to explicitly manage each profile.

I don't think that's the case - on Android we only show the first dive computer and completely ignore the additional dive computers. Are you sure that they are indeed shown as separate dives? If yes, I'd love to see a screencast video that shows that phenomenon because I don't understand how that could be happening.

Thanks for all the feedback!
