OK I give up, where has the convert group function gone? I haven't been able to find it in any logical (to me) location.

Hi Stephen,

Still where it has always been. :) (Templot needs to know which gauge to convert to):

Hi,
Had forgotten, it seemed logical to me that if it was a group function it would have been with the rest of the group functions.

Hi Stephen,

But then how would Templot know which gauge to convert to?

I will add a menu item in the group menu linking to the gauge list in the next program update:

Thanks,
Now all we need is the ability for Templot to cope with the changing a group between standards and for it not to need any extra work. Yes I know, difficult if not impossible and probably not even worth trying to.
