I have some questions about "configure equipement" in EKOS. See this screenshot: seescho.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/ksta...igure-equipement.jpg

1. If I delete all the equipement, I´ve added to configure equipement, the ID is not resettet. The next piece, I add, will get the next ID, in my case here 8 and not 1, how I expected. How can I reset the ID to 1?
2. What advantage has it to add all the equipement here, if I use EKOS?
3. What does kstars do with the information in the driver-field? My driver is indi-eqmod-telescope, but I set this driver in the profile-manager in EKOS. Must I set it here, too?

I think other features such as What's up tonight and observation logs use this information.
