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 Mouse Navigation Moving the mouse shows the current sky coordinates of the mouse in the statusbar. 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. 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. Right-click opens a context-sensitive popup menu for the object nearest the mouse cursor. 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) 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 Menu functions and keyboard shortcuts If a menu action opens a window, the window's behavior is listed elsewhere.

Setting port name initiate a scan for that specific port, whereas leaving the port empty initiates a complete auto port scan. Both actions can be canceled at any time. Automatic port scan.

KStars doesn't know my city's coordinates, while Marble does. Could not they share the a common datasheet with cities' positions?Need to fix DeepSkyComponent::init() so that downloaded ngcic??.dat files will be merged into one ngcic.dat file, as the 4.0 code now expects.Observing log data and user added links don't seem to be saved between restarts of KStarsFootnotesAdd footnotes describing issues noted in the main list here. : Should the epoch box be preset to the current clock's epoch, rather than J2000? : Horizontal Coordinates seem to take time zone of geographic location into account.
