How to move airport reference point

Status
Not open for further replies.
Hello again, slowly things starts to become understandable now but I am still struggling with the "Move" funktion. Its about having a reference Lat/Long value from a certain point in Google Earth from the airport and set the same point values in ADE.
Am I possible not thinking correctly here, if I for instance change the Airport reference value in the setting box, is this perhaps not the right way of doing it? And the drag function giving in meters (distance) OK but the angle, which are we talking about ( from North =0 and clockwise angle so that straight south is 180? As you see much is uncertain.

Appreciate further clarification

OK, no support available but I guess I figured out all issues above through trial and error except for a new question I posted today.
Thanks

There is support available but everyone is a volunteer. People are in different times zones and a lot of us are affected by the restrictions and worries of the virus pandemic. Also we are seeing a lot more support requests than usual probably because so many people are locked in at home and have time to play with the sim

We seem to have two threads on the same subject as you started a new one.

This is not very helpful and won't increase the chances of getting a reply Bearings (headings) are always clockwise from north which is zero. So 90 is east , 180 south and so on. I want to be clear where you are putting the coordinates. In the move dialog

or the Airport Properties dialog

Changing anything in this box (if you can) is not going to move the airport.
 
Sorry for opening a new thread but I felt I was ready with the subject as described above and finally got a new subject of getting double buildings after having used the Move tool. I think I understand the bgl discussion and will now try to implement it.

No worries. I will post any further remarks on the other thread and close this one to new posts
