Minor short cut key sequence conflict? Plus other bits...

Post by jst200 » 01 Oct 2019, 12:28

Hi Han,

I've just been playing with ASTAP's Tools. They are amazing! :D It may take me a while to get to grips with the value of them all, but until then they provide some interesting options!

I just noticed what looks like a minor short cut key sequence conflict. "Ctrl-L" is set to both "Rotate image 90deq left" and ""Deepsky annotation".

Whilst on, I have another few minor things to suggest...
  • Could you add a version number to the distribution .exe?
    It would help to confirm you have the version you think you have. From a personal perspective, I like to keep a few back copies of programs, so I can go back if I have a problem with the latest release. So, I have to rename each version as it comes out.
  • Could you put a link to the Forums page on the ASTAP (http://www.hnsky.org/astap.htm) and the HNKSKY (http://www.hnsky.org/software.htm) pages.
    When I do a Google search for "ASTAP Forum", it always goes to the ASTAP page (http://www.hnsky.org/astap.htm). This is fine, but then I have to edit the address to www.hnsky.org to get a link to the forum.
Thanks for a great program. :D

Cheers, Jim

Hello Jim,

Thanks for the feedback. I will correct the double short cut.

I assume you want a version number recognized by Windows file explorer? It is currently at 0.9.1.0 . I don't want to rename the executables, just keep it as astap.exe. Up to now I maintain the version under pulldown menu help, about.

It is good to keep a copy. Note there are also old versions at SourceForge.com Yes there are maybe too many editions. Every time I think it is finished, something new pops-up. As soon it is 2 months stable, I will issue version 1.0 but that is delayed up to now. :)

The forum is in http://www.hnsky.org/astap.htm but maybe a little hidden. I will see how I can change that.

Clear skies, Han

Thanks, Han,

Just to be certain I didn't mislead you. It was the file "astap_setup.exe" that I was wondering if you could rename to "astap_setup_v0.9.274.exe", for example and not the executable "astap.exe" itself. :)

Personally I'm not worried about the number of versions. It shows a a continuous stream of development, which is excellent! :D

Now you have told that the Forum pointer is on the page, it's as clear as day! I don't know how I missed it! :-) What's worse is that I was using the "Version History" link just below it and still missed it! :oops:

Cheers, Jim
