Aerodrome designated points like DW412 (a point of an IFR transition of EDDW) are in the database of Skydemon. If I use if the "Find" tool of the iOS version and enter DW412 I will get the point and if I click on it a yellow marker occurs on the map at the requested position. The yellow marker disappears some seconds later - no way point to select left. 
But if I create a new route e.g. from EDLI to EDDW with DW412 in the route field I get an error: "DW412" is unknown.
On the other hand while flying (from EDLI to EDDW), I can select "DirectTo", "Find", "DW412" and now the way point will be inserted in my PLOG with the correct name and position and with a correct IFR way point marker in the map!
Why is it not possible the use these way points in planning mode?

Thanks Dirk
PS: The behavior of the PC version is nearly the same

This is a bug, thank you for contacting us about it. Such waypoints will be available for use in that window in the next version.

Hi Tim,
just tested with the new iOS version 3.13.2.216 - yes it it now working nearly as expected!
Thanks.
I have only one minor issue left: If I have such a waypoint in my plan and open the "whats here" menu on that point, I will get only the coordinates and the possibility to add a user waypoint instead of the point itself. In the PLOG the point is listed with the correct name.

Yes, that is currently by design since the waypoint is not actually shown on the map.

Is there a way to show airport designated points on the map?

I believe some of them are shown if you're in airways mode and you have planned a flight to that airfield.
