A quick item I just noticed:

  • Under Config --> Coordinates --> Units I have it set to Nautical.
  • I go to Add --> Bearing Line and in the range dropdown it shows miles and meters. It turns out those are Statute Miles even though my Configuration is set to use Nautical.

Suggested fix:

Have that units dropdown for Bearing Line contain the following options so the user has no doubt as to what type of units they are using:

  • Meters
  • Kilometers
  • Feet
  • Imperial
  • Nautical

This same suggestion would also apply to Range Ring, Buffer, and Sector.
