How To Change The Light Time Setting? (Answer: Read On!)

I'm using SS7 Pro. The "Light Time" setting has long been my nemesis with SS: Why would I ever NOT want this box checked? We see the cosmos based on where we are. Especially, having this setting OFF creates disagreements between the listed timing of planet/moon events and their animations.

Well, SS7 appears to always reset Light Time to OFF - why? How can I force this to stay ON? Thank you

    Dan, 

    Please confirm after making changes to the Settings that you are using the back button and not the [X] in the top right to exit.

    If you still think there is an issue please share a short screen recording.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your reply, Keiron.

    On the iOS app under the Precession Settings, there is no back button; there is only an [x] upper right. 

    I should have been more clear in my wording: setting the Light Time to On will stick temporarily, but something causes it to reset to OFF and this is unpredictable to me. (Why is ON not the default, by the way?). I have not noticed this problem with any other settings.

    Dan,

    See below, the back arrow.  You don't see that?  Please attach a screenshot.  You can't save settings with the [X].  Thanks!

    On the iPad, there is no back button; the left side of the screen is the full Settings menu.

    I see.  But, can't reproduce this issue.

    Bugs, like the one you are reporting, are 99% reproducible - meaning there is a sequence of actions that lead to the bug.  And, following that sequence the bug can be reproduced.  Without a sequence of actions developers cannot fix anything.  It is highly unlikely that the Light Time setting just randomly changes itself.

    So, please keep an eye on this issue and see if you can discern a path to reproduction.

    You should be able to set it and forget it.  If you want it on, turn it on, leave it on.  And vice versa.

    The Light Time option is available for those using our apps for research that want to know where objects actually are, as opposed to where they appear to be.

    Thanks!
