Is there a new doc users guide for this version of celestia or shall we use the old one from 1.6.1 for command shortcuts and such?

1.6.2 is just a bug fix of 1.6.1, the docs don't need to change except for stuff that was backported from 1.7.0.

Same thing, the add of a bookmark doesn't work into an existent folder or sub-folder. :eek:
It works into the main folder.

this is not a joke. we don't have any windows developer in our team, so we can't fix all windows-related bugs.

And the Windows users we do have aren't good enough in coding in order to help fix the problem.

In Celestia.cfg I put:
FavoritesFile "C: /Users/Ziegler/AppData/Roaming/Celestia/favorites.cel"

in c: \ Users \ myuser \ Appdata \ AppData \ Roaming \ Celestia (create if it doesn't exist) then create an empty file called 'favorites.cel'
When you add a bookmark in Celestia, it is in this file that it will be written

example:

Code: Select all

"Terre" {
   isFolder false
   parentFolder ""
   base   [ 3.179739477266811e-06 8.160017213370183e-10 -1.531555012776359e-05 ]

   axis   [ -0.0187826 0.995894 0.0885537 ]
   angle  0.100347
   time   2459193.237395228
   fov   0.5222549438476562
   selection "#0/Earth"
   coordsys "ecliptical"
}

"Mars" {
   isFolder false
   parentFolder ""
   base   [ 1.377141891052649e-05 5.636625374218299e-08 -1.895134564486278e-05 ]

I have write :

in c: \ Users \ myuser \ Appdata \ AppData \ Roaming \ Celestia (create if it doesn't exist) then create an empty file called 'favorites.cel'
When you add a bookmark in Celestia, it is in this file that it will be written

There is of course an error and you should read:
in c:\Users\my_installation_user\Appdata\Roaming\Celestia

Note that all the bookmarks you create in celestia are listed one after the other in the favorites.cel file

:hi:

in case anyone is wondering what is the status for bookmark organizer issue, the fix is here https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia/pull/881 but we don't have a window machine/person to build the .exe.

Great news, huge work judging by your change log.
However, after purging the previous package and following the Linux related instructions linked on that page, specifically for Ubuntu 18.04, I still have version 1.6.1.

Happy New Year 2021 ! :smile:

I use only 1.6.2 - 64 bits, so I deleted celestia 1.7 until a definitive version appears. :wink:
