the w&b windows are not scrolling evenly. Sometimes they seem to accelerate, which leads to confusion about the last position that was looked at in the form.

The “basic empty weight” has a slider for adjustment (down to 0 !).  But this is a fixed value until the next weight check.

I would appreciate a sum with the total weight in the graph.

To accomplish that you should set the "Max weight value" in loading points for that aircraft to 0 :

In that case no slider will be shown and you can set the value by tapping on the [Basic Empty weight] button. You will get a warning but just accept that.

There is a total weight value in the tripkit, just in case you didn't know yet. A total weight value in the W&B screen is on the wishlist, just as improving that scrolling mechanism (applies to other windows also).

Thank you, I set the 0 and it’s ok.  However, not very intuitive.

Looking at the graph, I would like to see the changes that will arise from shifting weights, together with the information about my „underload“.  (The margin to max TOW)

I am happy to know that you have it on the list.

Upcoming version will have Takeoff weight, zero fuel weight and overweight/underload displayed as text on the W&B graph.
