FS#63 - Feature request

Would it be possible to be able to select entering position in degrees, minutes and decimal minutes OR degrees, minutes and seconds. I have written a book on astro navigation and explain how to use Winstars as a sextant simulator and, in navigation, we use degrees, minutes and decimal minutes.
You may remember giving me permission last year to use screen shots in the book, well it is finally ready to publish !
Once again, this is a great piece of software and brilliant as a learning aid for teaching yourself astro navigation at home. Once you have taken your sight with Winstars, the rest is number crunching.
There is some info on my web site and please let me know if there are any issues with my recommending Winstars in this way.

Hello Andy!

Sorry, I only discovered your message now!
Congratulations for your book and there is no problem if you want to talk about the software.

In fact, you would like to display the angles like this: 10º 5' 30'' as 10º5.5' … Is this correct? Yes, I can add that option…

Sorry again for the delay,

Tell me if it works…

Have a nice day !
