For as long as I can remember (since SS3 on an iPad 2) when the FOV box's "tilt" (= Observe -> Scope Display -> Field Rotation Angle) was set to 0*, it aligned itself with the RA/Dec coordinate lines. For DSO's that's great. I have occasionally wished, however, that the tilt could be fixed relative to the horizon and stay aligned that way as you moved the sky around--that would allow better planning for nightscape photos.
Tonight my wish came true. Suddenly, the FOV tilt is fixed relative to the horizon, and as you move the sky around, the "NESW" indicators spin around the edges of the FOV box, instead of the usual thing of the FOV box itself spinning around to stay aligned with RA/Dec and the NESW indicators staying aligned with the box. The problem is, I don't know what I did to get the changed behavior.
Both viewpoints are handy to have but I don't know of any way to switch behaviors. I had asked for the alternate behavior as an enhancement at one time but was officially told no one else had asked for it so it wasn't going to change. Anyone here know what I did (inadvertently) to switch behaviors? Am I able to switch back to the usual behavior? If it's really switchable, how?
Edit: The map is set up to show the equatorial grid: Grid & Reference -> Show Grid with Equatorial Coordinates. The horizon is visible as a translucent area. It's set up this way 99% of the time and I haven't changed it recently.
