myTripkit.pdf —> why not use the name of the route loaded...

Look & Feel of the pdf. —> still the same as EV3–> update it. In the advertisement it states that EV3 is rebuild from the ground up... : use other colors, lettertypes and even templates... This one for example I really like it for planning purposes:

I especially like the way you can fold the document for ‘inflight’ purposes...:-)

Hi Piet,

Thank you for your suggestion and I have moved it here to the feature UpVoting section.

Cheers,

Very good idea.

I hope it is OK to hijack this thread, if you think my question is unrelated, I'll happily open a new one.

 

There is already one other question dealing with the layout of the trip kit and asks for a different layout:

https://easyvfr4.aero/community/campfire/tripkit-export-in-a5-format-as-in-the-old-pocketfms/

 

I would like to ask a more general question: does the underlying technology allow for changing the

layout easily or is a change of e.g. a font or line spacing etc. something which requires much

development time and is thus not easily achieved?

 

My personal reason is that an A5 print output of the trip kit has fonts which sometimes become too

small for my 50+ year old eyes and I would much appreciate slightly bigger fonts.

Would this be something which could be made to some extent configurable (i.e. like in the

'Readability' section of the settings)?

 

Thank you

Hi Kabiz, for some background info first see my reply at https://easyvfr4.aero/community/feedback-on-features-and-functionalities/approach-charts-in-tripkit/#post-2539  

So unfortunately its not easy to "user adjust" things like fonts, fontsizes etc. Technically its easy to develop support for that, but the problems then only start, for example a lot of items don't fit anymore to have to get rearranged etc. 

A more flexible tripkit layout is definitely on our wishlist, but to be honest not very high on the priority list at the moment.
