Thanks Sean, it is looking really good.
Couple of little bugs.
1. I am not able to click on the extreme ends of the slider. It always goes to one jump in. You can get to the end using up/dn, lf/rt but not by clicking with the mouse.
2. Strange rendering. If one of the selections is at the end, or one in from the end of the slider and the other is somewhere in the middle. The chart corresponding to the middle selection is rendered with fuzzy text and lines. If you toggle any 2 selections not at the end (or one click in) the rendering is OK.
1. The arrow keys work fine, now I understand that it is a separate window you just have to click on the chart to reactivate chart moving. So all good.
2. It would be nice to have some reference labels on the slider ie. 0-12, the slider positioning is otherwise a bit vague for the user. If you are familiar with a particular area you may for example like to always use a 6 and 2 as your selections.
3. Without the title bar you cannot drag the slider about. Not a problem if you know. You can end up with the slider in the middle of the chart if title bar is switched off in preferences.
4. The title bar is a bit untidy "C-" when vertical you could add a couple of blank chars at the beginning of the label.
I really think we should consider making this part of OpenCPN core
and simply switch on or off as an option.
There could even be an option to dock
it at the end of the toolbar.
"L" could then be used as a hot key toggle.
