New Sounding Display
I quite like the recent change to the sounding display, adding the Skew-t graph.
However, it is not as usable as it used to be for two reasons:
- No longer possible to move back and forward in time while the sounding is displayed, which was really handy. Instead now have to keep switching the sounding on and off as you move time - very clunky. Would prefer old way.
- Also the selection of different points on the graph is weird and not as useful as just being able to move the axis up linearly in the past. I can sort of see what you're trying to do to, but it doesn't really work and is very fiddly.
I believe the complaints you mention apply mostly to mobile devices. I too experience the problem you mention with the inability to move forward or backward in time while watching the sounding. In the browser version, this is still possible though.
Your 2nd point I thought I agreed to, but then I found out it is not that bad. You can still move up and down in the y-axis, with your finger/mouse to the far right of the graph (you dont have to put your finger on the lines to get your info). You will get some clutter from the abs/hum & dry/wet-adiabatic lapse rates, but at least you can still clearly see the height/air pressure/dew point/temperature on the y-axis.
