A default name when creating a waypoint

Question

It would be cool if when you were creating a waypoint if there was a default name filled in. The first one could be called “stage 2” the second one could be called “stage 3” etc.

Note that the first waypoint. Created starts with the number 2, this is because when doing a multi, the listed coordinates are usually stage one.

Of course if someone wanted to change it to a more meaningful name, they could.

A default name would be nice. But here in Hannover (Germany) your numbering would not work, because multis here normally use Start, Intermediate Station (Zwischenstation) 1-x, and Final. This prevents misunderstandings on what is the first station.

So customizable default name for user waypoints with optional numbering starting with 1 or 2 could be a nice feature for everyone.

Best,
David

Ah!  Much like elevators in Europe where the ground floor is zero.  Interesting.  In the states, when people say "oh, it's a 5 stage multi" it means that when you find the 5th thing,  you have found the final.  I know L4C starts it's numbering new waypoints with 1 which has always thrown me off.
