For VFR pilots flying from airport A direct to airport B this is not an issue. But if you fly IFR and enter the entire flight plan into FF this could help. Correcting errors in the flight plan or getting a reroute meant putting the cursor at the end of said plan and erasing it to the point you needed. I guess this might be in the book, I’m going to read it one of these days, but was one of the questions I asked ForeFlight today. Got a quick response too. Here it is.
One of my favorite tips for editing in a bumpy cockpit is to tap your finger on the search box, which will put your cursor at the end of the line, ready for you to start typing. Tap and hold your finger in the center of the search box until the “bubble” appears. This is a magnifying glass designed to help you see where the insertion cursor is beneath your finger. The problem is that it’s so high up on the screen, it gets in the way. TIP: While holding down your finger, drag the bubble down to about halfway down the screen and you’ll be able to see the insert cursor clearly up in the search box (ignore the bubble). Now if you drag your finger left or right, you can scroll through your route and then let go when the insert cursor is at the exact point where you want to continue editing.
I learned something today, thought I would pass it along.
