When the top windows close button (red x top right) is pressed in the GPS Navigation mode window - it, err, closes the window !!!!

But it also closes the whole application so losing your loaded route etc. That is very easily done by accident on a tablet and hugely inconvenient in flight

Is there anyway to prevent this?

Perhaps trap it in the same way the Print Centre windows are trapped. When closed they return you to the planning screen

The "nav mode window" isn't another window at all. It's just SkyDemon in nav mode. And yes, if you press the close button, it will close the app! The only thing we could possibly do about this would be to introduce a potentially annoying confirmation dialog upon clicking the button.

Ah, I see.

Perhaps put that 'close' pop up on the team's 'to do' list if windows tablets increase in popularity for Navigation?

Flying left seat the tablet is most easily picked up by its top right corner and that's when the problem occurs. I have accidentally closed the App several times whilst in flight.

Thanks Tim

Your wish is our command. The next version of SkyDemon Plan will prompt before exit, but only while in navigation mode.
