AIS query vs own track

If an AIS icon is close to or on one of my previous tracks, when I right-click to get a pop-up for AIS Target Query I get the Track pop-up instead. Can the AIS Target Query take precedence over Tracks when both are near the cursor? If I want my past track info I can always find a point that isn't close to an AIS target. BUT, the reverse isn't true - when an AIS target is on an old track I have no choice but to click where it is located.

Re: AIS query vs own track

You could make this request in Tracker, so it won't get lost!
There might also be some way to tell it to search for other entities again.
I don't know, maybe another right-click?

Tracker go to the https://opencpn.org and pick tracker from the top bar.
Register first. Make it a "Feature Request"

Did you put in a request under Tracker? If you did what number is it as I would like to vote it up.
