[edit] List of expected behaviors for KStars 4.2.

Please test these behaviors, and indicate whether it works correctly or not. Once a behavior has been tested, attach one of the following codes to the beginning of the line to indicate its status.

  • No symbol or Black: behavior not yet tested
  • * or Red: behavior causes KStars to crash
  • X or Orange: behavior is broken
  • B or Yellow: behavior sort-of works, or is buggy
  • U or Cyan: Usability issue
  • C or Green: behavior works correctly

[edit] Mouse Navigation

  • Moving the mouse shows the current sky coordinates of the mouse in the statusbar. [1]
  • Clicking the mouse identifies the nearest object in the statusbar; the object's "long name" is shown
  • Hovering the mouse attaches a temporary label to the nearest object.
  • Hover labels fade out when the mouse moves
  • Hover labels only appear when the map is not in motion
  • Double-clicking attaches a label to the nearest object, centers it in the display, and engages tracking. [2]
  • The double-click label is removed when the object is no longer centered
  • Click-and-drag moves the map such that the cursor remains roughly in the same place in the sky.
  • Dragging the sky disengages tracking
  • Dragging the sky to one of the poles does not cause odd behavior
  • Click-and-drag with Ctrl pressed draws a rectangle in the map that defines a new area to be displayed when the mouse button is released
  • Click-and-drag with the middle mouse button zooms in and out according to the vertical motion of the mouse
  • Scrolling the mouse wheel zooms in and out.
  • Scrolling the mouse wheel while holding down Shift / Ctrl decreases the amount of zooming in / out.
  • Right-click opens a context-sensitive popup menu for the object nearest the mouse cursor. [1]

[edit] Keyboard commands

  • Arrow keys: scroll the display. Holding Shift increases the speed
  • [0-9] center on a major solar system body (0 is the sun, 3 is the moon; the rest are planets in order from Mercury to Pluto)
  • [<,>] Advance clock forward/backward by one time step (clock will be paused if it isn't already) [3]

[edit] Object Actions:

  • C: Track object
  • D: Open the Details window
  • L: Attach/Remove the label
  • O: Add object to Observing List
  • T: Attach/remove trail (solar system only)
  • Pressing Shift targets action on the focused object, rather than the clicked object

[edit] Footnotes

Add footnotes describing issues noted in the main list here.

[1]: Does not work at high zoom when refraction corrections are enabled. Possibly because the RefractCorr1 array is not the exact "inverse" map of RefractCorr2 array. The bug is in objectNearest and thus other features are affected too.

[2]: Tracking at high zoom sometimes "shakes" the display periodically. This has nothing to do with atmospheric refraction.

[3]: FIXED [897451]The clock is paused if it is running, but the icon in the toolbar doesn't change state

[4]: The display in the status bar shows a different field of view (possibly the minor axis) from what is entered

[5]: Why are there 2 "Main Toolbar"s? Is this a bug that only I am experiencing?

[6]: What are those blank actions?

[7]: TODO: Check if the altitude / azimuth shown are the real altitude and azimuth and not the back-refracted ones.

[8]: Disable / don't show the faint magnitude zoomed in / zoomed out spin boxes under the catalogs tab

[9]: A lot of widgets have undefined what's this help.

[10]: Tracking doesn't lock on the location of a DSO (found using the find dialog) if DSOs are disabled.

[11]: Ground fills up even when show ground is disabled, or horizon polygon disappears when the horizon is close to the top of the screen in Gnomonic Projection
