Perhaps too much to ask, but it would be nice if the little red cross that appears top-left of a plate actually remained visible as you zoom in making easier and quicker to close a plate. At the moment, you have to zoom out manually to see the button which is in a fixed position.

Note: Zooming in and out has been a controversial subject lately, however the latest IOS 12 updates has reminded me how important equipment performance and task efficiency is to my flying, and how detrimental it can be when there any sort of delays especially during critical phases of flight. When the IOS 12 update caused the slow downs, having to swap plates on approach to an airfield during the final stages of flight was nearly impossible because of the steps involved to even close a plate (panning and zooming were unbearably slow). Having quick access to the button would have made it easier and the IOS changes less of a burden in that scenario.

I support this request. it can be annoying to have to look for the red cross for closing when zoomig in.

How would you suggest we move it, as the plate is zoomed in and it would naturally move offscreen? I am supportive of this idea.

Two possible options:

1) as you zoom in and the red button touches the edge of the screen, it moves inward staying visible on screen, perhaps hugging the screen edge.

Or

2) just move the red button to fixed point on screen, but somewhere that’s doesn’t obscure your route or important parts of the screen.

Don’t forget that you can close a superimposed plate by pressing the ‘bubble’ against the relevant plate on the airfields menu.

Depending on the circumstances it may require a few touches on the screen, but it is an alternative to panning/rescaling.

I will experiment with making the red close button such that it can't disappear off the top of the screen as you zoom in.
