The manual states that wind can be manually entered for the whole route or individual legs. While the text describes how the winds can be entered for individual routes, I can't find a way to set the wind for the whole trip.
That would not be a huge problem since I could just copy and paste the same wind data into each leg. But there comes the bad ui design. SkyDemon will only accept the wind for a leg if you press OK but then the window closes. Then you need to open it again find the next leg.

1. I think the manual should state more clearly how wind data can be set for the whole flight.
2. The leg wind window should apply the data as soon as gets entered or another button should be placed besides the input box to apply the data for this leg to prevent the use of enter and okay.
3. Enter closes the window also. That's annoying if you want to edit multiple legs.

But I might be wrong.

Might be an option to add a weather field to the Flight Details display?

No need. It's there on the top menu:
Weather > Set Wind Conditions for Flight

GO
