AspEdit manual      List dialog box

The list is permanently displayed at the right of  the map. It contains the areas of the open airspace file, and allows to add, delete and edit areas. It also allows to display and edit countries, navaids and waypoints.
It has functions for filtering and sorting airspace areas, and for the selection of some basic settings.



Select the type of data to be displayed in the list.

Default units:

For airspace areas: These are the default units that will be used initially when a new area is created.  You can set the units for each area individually via the Area dialog box. Changing the default units will have no effect on existing areas.
For other types: sets the units used in the list.

Note: changing the units can cause accuracy loss, see coordinate conventions.

Default border

The block input function allows to translate the description text as copied from an aeronautical publication directly to the format used by AspEdit. However, if there are border segments in the description, AspEdit can not determine which country file contains the data for the border segment. In the "default border" field, you can select a country file that will be used by default. If no default border is selected "XXX" will be used as country file for all borders.
In any case, you can correct the border via the area dialog box.


Only areas / navaids / watpoints  / countries with the given filter string at any place in their name will be listed.
When the "Filter list to map" toolbar button is activated  (see Map functions), the Filter control is deactivated, and the list will only contain items currently displayed on the map.

Show areas containing errors

Only airspace areas containing errors detected by AspEdit will be shown in the list. This allows to easily identify all affected areas.


Sort the list as selected. The left combo box defines the primary sort, the right combo box the secondary sort. The secondary sort will be applied for items with the same primary sort value.


Create a new area / navaid / waypoint  / country


Delete the area / navaid / waypoint / country that is highlighted in the list.  Confirmation will be asked


Contains all areas / navaids / waypoints / countries.

The selected area / navaid / waypoint / country will be highlighted on the map.
Start editing by double-clicking an item in the list.

If switched on via menu item "Settings - Area properties", the properties of the highlighted area are shown in a box at the top left of the map display.
