The buttons panels offer a streamlined user experience, allowing you to access key features and functions effortlessly.
- Relocated Settings & Help Buttons in Logbooks: The Settings and Help buttons that were previously displayed in logbooks have been relocated to the new buttons panels introduced in this release. With this change, you will now find the Settings and Help buttons conveniently located within the new buttons panels at the bottom of the sidebar. This relocation streamlines the user interface and ensures that important features and functions are easily accessible from a centralised location.
- Relocated Action Menu Button to New Buttons Panel: The Action Menu button has been relocated to the newly introduced buttons panel. Previously, the Action Menu button was located in a different area of the user interface notably the map screen. With this update, you will now find the Action Menu button conveniently placed within the new buttons panel at the bottom of the screen. This relocation aims to improve usability and ensure easy access to the Action Menu options for enhanced functionality.
- Action Menu Button Icon Change: Previously represented by a “plus” icon, we have now updated it to an “up arrow” icon. With this update, the Action Menu button will now feature an “up arrow” icon, providing a clearer visual representation of its functionality. The new icon aims to improve user understanding and enhance the overall user experience by aligning with common design conventions.
- “End Trip” Button Moved to Action Menu: We have made a significant change to the user interface regarding logbooks that utilize an “End Trip” button. Previously, the “End Trip” button was displayed separately within the logbook interface. With this update, we have streamlined the user interface by moving the “End Trip” button inside the Action Menu. You will now find the “End Trip” option conveniently located within the Action Menu, accessible by tapping the Action Menu button. This change helps to declutter the logbook interface while maintaining easy access to the “End Trip” functionality.

These interface layout changes lay the foundation for future updates that will enable split view functionality, allowing users to have multiple panels or views open simultaneously, enhancing multitasking capabilities within Deckhand Pro.The interface layout now consists of three distinct sections:
- Sidebar: The sidebar retains its familiar position and serves as a centralized navigation hub for accessing various features and sections within Deckhand Pro.

- Component Editor View: The component editor view remains as the main workspace where you can create, edit, and manage your logbook components. This view provides a comprehensive and focused area for working on logbook-related tasks.
- Resolved Delay in Trip Path Start: We have addressed an issue related to the trip path display. Previously, there were instances where the trip path (represented by a red line) would not start immediately when a new trip was initiated. With this release, we have fixed the underlying problem causing the delay in the trip path start. Now, when you start a new trip, the trip path will begin accurately and promptly, ensuring that the path is properly traced from the start of your journey.
- Resolved Trip Path Correction Delay: We have addressed an issue related to the correction of the trip path when events were aborted or deleted. Previously, there were instances where the trip path would not immediately correct itself when an event containing placemarks or annotations along the path was removed. With this release, we have fixed the underlying problem that caused the delay in trip path correction. Now, when you abort or delete an event that includes placemarks or annotations on the path, the trip path will promptly adjust and reflect the updated state, ensuring accurate representation of your journey.
