  1. In file manager is there a way to sort the list of *.dat files? When I open a project I find that my borehole *.dat files are listed in a seemingly random order and there is no way to sort them into numerical order.
  2. Hi, Sometimes things get forgotten as the years roll by. I'd like to repeat two wish list items from early 2006. (1) Keyboard shortcuts, gosh I miss them. Mitch said this was harder to implement than he initially thought. However, that does not make them any less desirable. The hours "Alt Insert Row" implemented as Alt+I+R would save brings a tear to my eye. (2) A request made by Berten Smekens, also in 2006, for a simple undo button. Ctrl+Z will do just fine thank you. I would like to say how useful the "units per page" tool is, that was introduced in version 7, when printing out logs .
  3. A useful option in the LogPlot histogram options is the ability to specify a value based colour gradation scheme. This feature could be enhanced if one could specify specific colours for nominated ranges of values. As an example Deere (1968) gave a five step classification for RQD values ranging from 0-20% very poor to 90-100% excellent. I will often colour code those classifications in plots that I prepare as single colours viz Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue. At the moment I have to do that outside of LogPlot and my suggestion is to implement it within LogPlot. You will note that the R
  4. In addition to the useful histogram options LogPlot already has, it would be good to be able to specify either a right hand or left origin axis. My specific application is for geotechnical logs. To emphasise zones of poor quality rock people have logged estimated rock strength and RQD (or fracture frequency) as two histograms next to each other. Typically rock strength is on the left hand side and the scale starts from the right and goes from high to low so that the weakest rock has the longest histogram bars and the strongest rock has the shortest bars. On the right side RQD starts from the
  5. For the next update, I would really appreciate some additional keyboard shortcuts to be assigned to the menu items; particularly for the Edit>Rows submenu. Too often I find myself going for the Excel "Alt Insert Row" key combo. When editing logging data I find it slows down my work flow to go back and forth between mouse and keyboard and given that it is essentially tables of data that we enter, the keyboard is a better tool for data entry than the mouse. Any other support out there?
