Re: Feature Request for "Alert Types" screen (f1)

Thank you for
the addition several weeks ago of the Alert Types screen (Function
key F1). Unusually helpful.
After reading your message twice. I still don't
understand what your trying to achieve.
Background: I change the continent selection twice daily using
Settings (F11), changed once in the morning hours, and once in the
evening hours, depending on circumstances. Each change in Settings
is the same, every day. Please see below.
Request: The feature appearing in the Alert Types screen
certainly helps matters as it shortens the time to make changes,
and is very easy to navigate to. It might be enhanced even
further, and quicken the time it takes to change the selection of
the various continents, if there were actually two such selections
in the Alert Types screen, that is: "Wanted Continent Set One"
and "Wanted Continent Set Two". Two of them there would shorten
the time it takes to make the twice-daily changes in Settings.
They'd be selected or de-selected daily, depending on East-West
propagation changes and morning and evening Grey Line changes.
Thanks for the consideration. //Mark
If you have Continents marked as needed, why are you changing them
to not-needed depending on the time of day & propagation? If a
Continent is needed in the Morning, how can it be not-needed in
the Afternoon and then needed again the next morning? It is either
needed or it is not, time of day and propagation should not come
Please rephrase your request and explain why time-of-day and
propagation is important. Sorry, but I am totally confused.
BTW, the Alerts Types Screen has been part of JTAlert for many
years, it is not a recent addition.
