How about just making the currently active camera be in bold text in the manager so it's easy to pick out - since the manager has a tree view you can easily focus on the correct selection of profiles.

In the profile dropdown I could do bold for profiles for the selected camera, which would give a nice consistency to the UI.

cheers,

Robin

Well the extra profiles are already shown with the camera name in parenthesis. I was just hoping to cut down on the size of the list and simplify things.

I can't see a reason to have anything other than the current camera shown, as it would be really rare that two cameras would share gain, offset, etc. And you can't load saved darks, flats, etc. anyway. When testing it, I've never been able to load one camera's profile into another one without getting an error of some kind.

UI tweaks to latest build to make it easier to spot which profiles apply to the current camera.

I still favour showing all profiles as if you have multiple cameras from the same manufacturer then the bulk of the settings are applicable to all of them.

I only have a ZWO ASI120MM and a ASI224MC... about as similar as they can get, and I've never been able to share a profile between them. :)

On a semi related topic, another suggestion or two for the profile manager...

1. Add a right-click menu for renaming and deleting a profile in the profile manager.
2. Show the full path to the profiles in the manager's top bar.
3. Add the ability to sort profiles by modified date
