Drivers RETAIN setup info was created by Ron Kramer

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.

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

I have done that. Are you saying then I can leave the other areas blank?

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?
