Any way we could get an option to manually set the vertical exaggeration used in the terrain graphic? Or maybe more simply, to set the minimum and maximum elevation.

When comparing multiple trips side by side, it's nice if they have the same exaggeration. I know this can be done using Bulk Operations, but those charts don't show all the detailed info.

    I don't have an ETA, but it's on the radar as part of improving profile printing / exporting generally. Beyond comparing multiple routes, exporting an image of a shorter route leads to a comical amount of exaggeration.

    What parts of the extra/detailed info do you generally use?

    My usage scenario is, from the Terrain Statistics screen, exporting a PDF (profile.pdf) of each route. This makes for a good summary of the route's characteristics. I use all of the extra info, but probably most pertinent is the Land Cover

    So in this case, I'm exporting individual routes, but would like to plot them on the same x/y scale so they can be compared more easily.
