Just spent a few hours with DAWS 0.42 and some obs below:

- Weather symbols are too small [except for Fog!] dont know if this is a draft set and will be replaced, but DA2000 are far clearer..

- Isobar labels are difficult to read - needs white font on the label or be able to change colour of label

-Some stations are not decoding correctly.
For instance,
EGVO 171150Z 35007KT 9999 FEW015 SCT250 05/01 Q1001 BLU
has just plotted with FG and SKY OBS - rest was OK.
Some stations always seem to have weather included but not on the METARS ie.
EGPK 171150Z 00000KT 9999 FEW035 03/02 Q1009
EGPD 171150Z 31011KT 9999 FEW018 04/01 Q1008 NOSIG
seem to have weather 79 [hail] plotted

- MIFG - plots as FG

- Visibilities in m do not get displayed unless physically entered in the quality box a 'M' is displayed

- When applying apressure overlay, there are no Highs or Lows with values [as in DA2000] plotted

- When applying pressure isobars I get the plot, but "Digital Atmosphere encountered an error I/O error 32"

-International Boundaries do not change colour in the Styles box - remain on red

- Would it be possible to have a toggle of Plot model on the left hand side, as I vary it between UK and North Atlantic maps, instead of having to go into preferences

-Date stamp causes "Access violation at 005 44463 etc" and dies not work

-Fleet code is excellent!

Thanks

All the best

Phil
