turn on meridian flip? was created by Dean

I update SM OS to v1.7.0 stable channel model SM-140,
KStars build 2022-02-26 v3.5.8beta .  I auto-focussed, polar aligned,
set 2 additional model points and set my guiding target for M67.
I am capturing a sequence and want to turn on meridian flip on
the Ekos guide panel.  If I check the "Flip if HA > " box the
status message is "inactive (no Target set)" even though I am running
a capture sequence with a target.  How do i request
a meridian flip ?

I just updated SM OS today and still cannot get the meridian flip to turn on in the Mount
control page.  I select a target, start a capture sequence, the Setup page shows "Target: X"
at the far right below the Disconnect button where "X" is whatever I'm capturing.

You need to plate solve and slew to the target in Align module?

I do this every time I select a target: right click on the sky map or
search target by name, tell the mount to goto, then align plate solve with slew to target.
Either that or I load and slew from a previous session image.

It’s a new bug.  I heard Jasem fixed it. I first saw it when trying the new Mac version.

I faced the same issue today. Is the bug still there? Does it mean there will be no meridian flip or is the status message just nonsense?
