Is it possible to combine lists of user waypoints loaded on different machines?  Saving to the cloud from a machine completely overwrites the list on the cloud, and loading from the cloud overwrites what's on the machine.

Some of us on this forum have been asking for this for years. I’ve accidentally overwritten and lost waypoints in the past because of the current solution so I’m now very very careful when backing up etc.

A better and more consistent cloud solution is needed. At the moment, waypoints, aircraft and routes all use different methods of backup and retrieval.

This is in need of decent consistent redesign but with a lot of feature requests like these, SD believe it’s “their train set” and they’ll do whatever they want.

matthew_w100, we'd certainly consider something like that but only if lots of people wanted that particular feature. I'm not aware of many requests for that kind of detailed waypoint management so it may not make the bar at the moment. The vast majority of people do not require complicated waypoint management so for the moment there are more pressing things for us to be working on.

plume_tray, you appear to be getting it. It's not classy to jump on other people's threads grinding your axe though, so please stop it.

Well done, emporer. Your over-use of uppercase and punctuation, and under-use of words to explain what your problem actually is, has really helped.
