~mil/mepo-tickets#27: 
Save/restore state: default settings / location+zoom level

Sorry if this is not fit for the mepo-tickets, feel free to delete.

I think what is missing right now for me to start using mepo as my "daily driver" is the fact that it always starts centered on Manhattan.

I would love to have a simple (maybe it exist but is not documented? i swear i tried to RTFM!) way of configuring default coordinates, and a default zoom level.

Ideally "last position", coordinates and zoom level of last time mepo was used would make a great default for most people i think.

By all means, keep it up! mepo rules (already)! <3

You can set the default center in ~/.mepo/bookmarks:

center_on_coords 60.0 30.0;

Ah for sure - I agree, the way its setup to default the map to NYC is not ideal. You can however override this as ~sikmir mentioned. You can also read more about autoloading preferences in the userguide at: https://git.sr.ht/~mil/mepo/tree/HEAD/doc/userguide.md#strongautoloading-preferencesstrong .

I'm going to keep this ticket for the idea of 'last position' / autoloading preferences. As you mentioned restoring coordinates / zoom level last used is a great default and planned in the next milestone (5) as part of save/restore state.

Thanks for your feedback! It's really helpful to get end users perspective as I am biased in being on the development and user side.

Wonderful!! Thanks a lot! I will then continue to open "user-feedback" tickets based on my daily-driving, feel free to delete when they are irrelevant.

Using this space, also talking about defaults and something that is to me badly missing (maybe already on the roadmap?) is a scale for distances... any scale really. maybe just saying in the bottom part the distance of the width of current view would be enough for a start..?

~baroque - sounds good opened https://todo.sr.ht/~mil/mepo-tickets/30 for this.

Also added a user-feedback label; yes please do open tickets for things you notice!

Will be default in 0.5 to save/restore state
