I've recently upgraded from SNP 6.x to SNP 8.
I had FOV circles around each of my Meade LX200 8 inch classic guide stars so at a glance I would see which two guide stars were available for setting the telescope to.
In the past when upgrading or reinstalling I would simply copy and paste a few saved files from the users/ app data and I would be good to go with all my old settings, bells, and whistles.
With SNP8 I find this impossible to accomplish. Perhaps there is a way, unfortunately, I haven't found it.
On to plan two. add all new FOV indicators. I chose yellow for the color and 5deg circles around Arcturus, hit done, a few drop downs happen fast then the window closes looking like it worked. However, there is no yellow FOV circle around Arcturus. I have show FOV selected.
