    Gonna need a little more information, ani4may.

    If its repeatable, please send me the traffic of flight plan files and tell me what you were doing at the time.

    Glad it's no longer a problem for you. But, there's nothing you should be able to do that will hang/crash the program. So, there is a "bug" in there somewhere.

    Would you mind tryig to repeat the situation and, if you succeed, tell me how you did it.

    Incidentally, consolidated mode is simply a way to display weekly flight plans in the Leg List such that all flight plans that are identical save for the day of week on which they operate appear on a single line and may be edited as if they were a single flight plan.

    i am sorry i am not able to achieve that again .
    i will surely tell you if i come across it .
    i love your software .

    there is another problem :

    1 .how does the program know which direction an aircraft should take around the globe ? this causes problems with days to be added at the destination .

    2. whenever i make a leg that reaches its destination a day later or before , i am not able to override the value successfully .

    e.g. ETA reads 2:30 +1
    after override to 3:15
    it reads as 3:15 +7 or maybe -7 .

    thank you .

    When you override 2:30 + 1 with 3:15, you are telling the system that the flight arrives on the same day of the week as it departs. Since the flight crosses midnight, the system interprets this override as arriving on the day one week later than it departed, hence the +7. (-7 shouldn't occur, so I'll take a look for that issue.

    Does an override ETA of 3:15 + 1 work?

    no you cannot add things like + 1 .
    this is why i added 3:15 in the override box expecting it to understand what i meant .

    Ok, I'll take a look at it ASAP. However, it may be a few days before I am able.

    ani4may, I've finally had a chance to look at this issue. While I have discovered a minor bug in this area, it's not the one causing your difficulty. In fact, I am unable to duplicate what you are seeing. Perhaps its time-of-day specific.

    Please provide me with the details of the flight(s) that causes this problem and include a screenshot of the main screen so I can see your other settings.

    Release 1.6.25 addresses the ETA override issue.
