Here is exactly what I did (for this test, I first created 3 different flight plans):
1. I selected the Flight Plans Folder, then the Categories tab.
2. In the list of categories, I selected “User Saved Routes” (ID 4)
You have to 'Set' the category, a single click, highlights it, but does not change the category.
You must either Double click on the category or press the 'Set Category' button' to change to a new category.
Then the table/grid will update with the routes in the newly set category.
3. I selected the third flight (KPHX-KABI – your tutorial 2)
4. In the File menu, I clicked on “Delete Flight Plan”.
5. A small window opened up stating “Subscript out of range” and showing an OK button.
Still not able to re-create this error.
Only thing I can think of is the User Saved Routes category is not the active category.
If you were to try and delete a route in the logged routes category, you might get this error since the
logged category can get very large.
9. I then double-clicked on the “Logged Routes” row (ID5), then I clicked back on the “User Saved Routes” row, and lo-and-behold, all THREE (3) flights were gone! However I did find them back in the Logged Routes category.
They are in the logged category because 'Every' route you build is logged.
This is a real mystery to me. The Users’ Guide does not even contain the word “Logged”, let alone explain what is the purpose of this category and how it works.
Logged routes allow you to retrieve previously created routes. They are displayed in order or Last created/Built first.
So really you do not need to save any routes, since every route you build is logged. Just open the
Logged category and retrieve it from there.
You can even search the category by Departure/Destination.
The Saved Routes category is there because the logged category can get quite large after while, and it may be easier to keep a small number of routes in your own user category.
10. So, bottom line, I still don’t know how to delete a flight plan, plus I have a Logged Routes category that interacts with the “User Saved Routes” for whatever reason.
You can also simply open the category file with a text editor, and remove the line of the route you wish to delete.
GETTING RID OF AN EXISTING FLIGHT PLAN
Works as you described, however, in addition to clearing in the Flight Plan box, I still need to manually remove all the lines in the route waypoint table.
You don't need to do that.
Every time you press 'Build' or 'Autogen' a route the route waypoint table is cleared and populated with the newly built route.
When you press 'Build' it creates a flight plan route route from the codes in the Flight Plan box.
To create a new route all you need to do it enter a new route into the Flight Plan box (with dep/dest airport) and press Build.
Example:KPHX PXR J92 LMT KSEA
Paste that exact line into the Flight Plan box.
Notice how the Departure and Destination airport boxes filled in automatically ?
All you have to do from here is press Build.
Now try and different route. See how quickly its happening ?
You built a new route in seconds.
