Hi,

I would appreciate very much if SD would accept coordinates in the format that Google Maps uses. If you find an interesting waypoint in Google Maps, you can easily find it’s coordinates by clicking on the map and enter the ‘what is here’ mode. One can than immediately see the coordinates. They are displayed in this format: (50.8950139, 4.3416945)
It is easy to do a copy&paste into SD but there the format is’t recognised. The “.” has to be replaced by a “,” and the “,” by a “;”.
As SD already accepts several formats, I guess it would be that much of an issue to add this ‘GoogleMaps’ style as well.

SkyDemon already accepts coordinate in that format, but if you're in a locale where the decimal separator is a comma then we will expect that instead. I guess that is the case here?

Hi Tim, indeed I’m from the Flemish speaking part of Belgium and our decimal separator is a comma.

Thanks. I agree with your feedback and the next version of SkyDemon will accept decimal coordinate in English locale even if you're not in such a locale.
