Drivers RETAIN setup info #37927
Just because this says WISH LIST...

I'd REALLY love it if the drivers would RETAIN the data I enter.

Example. (under ZWO ASI - 290 mini) guide camera. It says FITS HEADER and I enter my name. (and have entered it at least 20 times). ?

Example. (Under ZWO CCD) main camera, options tab, says telescope, focuser, filter, sky quality.) I have entered these also 20 times... and just did it again a few minutes ago.

Also in same driver it says OBSERVER "unknown" I've put my name in there more than I can keep track of.

And more. Not a complaint or a rant - As the software is WORTH MORE THAN I PAID FOR IT... but just something I WISH. = ) for this area.

AP Mach1 / CP4 APCC & PEMpro.
EXP SCI - ED152cf APO - Celestron 11" RASA - Stellarvue 80mm
Baader F2 HS NB filters, Lodestar X2 guide camera / OAG - ZWO 290mm mini
ZWO ASI1600MM Pro / ASI174M (solar) / ASI094MC
NEXDome, CLoudwatcher, AVX mount/ASIair and Stellarmate

In Ekos sequence, you see a small icon that says "Select Observer". Just enter your information there.

That's for the FITS Header part. For the snoop devices, you can save them to config by going to Options --> Configuration --> Save.

Wouldn't it be much easier (and stir less confustion among new users) if there was a SAVE button on every page/TAB in Indi setup?
