Hi - just bought Sky Demon and when playing with it last night added a couple of spurious waypoints and a route, but now want to delete them - easy enough on the PC, but how can you do this on Ipad?

In general, to delete things on an iPad, you slide your finger to the side over them as they're being displayed in a list. This reveals a Delete button. SkyDemon conforms to this pattern.

Thanks Tim - as you may have gathered, I'm a new IPad user as well.

I'm having the same problem. I can't find anywhere to display a list of waypoints. If I click on the waypoint itself and slide to the right I get a number of options including 'append to route' but no delete option

I am new to Sky Demon and using an iPad, I can't remove new waypoints, what am I missing?

Like the previous messages I have done the same, but without success.

Easy Peasy!
1. Hold a finger still over the way point for a couple of seconds. 2. Choose the delete way point from the options menu that have just appeared.

I have the same problem with the Android solution on a Nexus 7. Cannot delete a new waypoint. After keeping my finger on it the option list does not include a delete function.

Don't have an Android device handy, but just thought I'd re-clarify the easiest way to delete waypoints on the iPad.

Setup > Waypoints

Find the one you want in the list. Swipe to the right on it - the blue disclosure arrow will change into a red delete button. Press the button...

Almost there Smile.

On iPad: (or iPhone, presumably, I don't have one)
Look at the top of screen menu, tap Setup, then tap User Waypoints, then put your finger over the waypoint you want to delete and swipe LEFT. You'll get the DELETE option then.
I got there AFTER your helping tips and whe I got stuck on the swipe right I tried swipe left Smile)

Divelements: There's a real usability issue here. Should correct this ASAP, leave this option as it is (for those who are already used to it) but add another one, when you tap the waypoint on the screen for 2 seconds or so the DELETE option should appear in the same menu where "View on Map" appears, below it, possibly, and in red.
