Disable nebula name display; restore previous

Asked by Stephen Tonkin on 2011-11-19

Stellarium 0.10.4
Ubuntu Linux 10.04

I am trying to develop full-sky charts for my location. Initial FoV is set to 195*

I wish to be able to show the nebula circles, but disable the name display. I have tried the following in config.ini:

flag_nebula = true
flag_nebula_name = false
flag_nebula_long_name = false

However, nebula names (many of them long - eg "Great Nebula in Andromeda" still appear and, irritatingly, "Double Cluster" appears next to both NGC 869 and 864, so it appears as a double image; "NGC 1981" overlaps "Great Nebula in Orion" and the screen generally looks cluttered.

Secondly, when I start up, I would like to *automatically"go back to the configuration when I last closed Stellarium. I know I can do this by "Save Settings", but is there a "previous" or similar option for startup_time_mode? Also the "Save Settings" doesn't save it in paused mode.

Thanks in advance,
