Mode to limit diagrams to FL100 / 3000m.

Windy provides a wide range of information and diagrams but especially for hobby pilots the provided height range is far too much and makes it difficult to assess the relevant area especially on mobile devices. The majority of the hobby flights (gliders, paraglider, paramotor, ultra-light...) take place below FL100. I fly a paramotor and I have a limit at 5000 FT because I’m not equipped with a transponder. Means for me the relevant part of the diagrams is below 20% in the height.
The AIRGRAM has as an icon a paraglider but the height range is up to about 12km. The resolution of the relevant area below FL100 is accordingly low and hard to read. In the diagram below only the line with 900h is relevant. A change in the scaling would it make better to read.
The SOUNDING FORCAST diagram at least provides a single zoom in but then the displayed range is still up to 7km. Again the scaling would become better in both axis by limit the height to 3000m.
Accordingly, my suggestion is to add a mode in the settings to limit the height for all diagrams to FL100 /3000m.
Below is an example of another App which is widely used by paragliders. The limitation in the height brings a much better readability and provides more details in the relevant range. I like Windy and would hope that we will get some improvements in this area.
