Celestia_Tweaked_171201: extra blank line in lower-right

Post by selden » Fri Dec 01, 2017 8:35 pm

Minor problem:

Celestia_Tweaked_171201 (both x64 and x86) has an extra blank line in the data shown by its GUI in the lower right corner of Celestia's window. See the screengrab below.

ETA: this same problem is seen in Simlestia 171201


Suggestion:
It might be appropriate to provide the RA/Dec coordinate values as part of the expanded informational display shown when an additional V is typed.
I'm sure different people are going to have different opinions about what's important enough to be shown by default and what's not, though.

Maybe at some point which values are shown by which level of information could be user selectable?

The extra line results from me leaving some extra room in case I mess up.
The code that puts text there is kind of messy, so I made my adjustment to big rather than risking it being to small.
That way if something over ran, all it would do is wrap, not end u in a bit bucket.
I can reduce it on the next revision.
