Dive times vs. surface intervals

Post by thomasgronfeldt » Sat Jul 27, 2019 12:55 am

A little suggestion on something that confused the heck out of me (but I may just be slower than most):

Both dive times and surface intervals are entered in the same format ("00:00"), but I have noticed that while in dive times it is intended to be "MM:SS" and in surface intervals it is intended to be "HH:MM". I stupidly entered both in the "MM:SS" format and had to redo a whole bunch of manually entered dives.

Is there a way to format this differently? Ideally in the entry box itself, may use the hour/minute/second markers, so 22'44'' for dive times and 04H30' for surface intervals? I mean, I expect to remember now, but just in case.

It’s come up before, but I’ve not addressed it. I’ll make a note.
