 +===== About =====
  
 +Quick new point is designed for situations when you need to add more similar points at once or repeatedly during a time period.
  
 +===== 1. Define a new quick point =====
 +
 +Before adding a quick point it is necessary to define it - point definition enables easy sorting points into logical groups:
 +  * **Menu > More functions > Quick new point > {{:manual:user_guide:tracks:add.png?nolink&30|}}**
 +  * a new quick point definition dialog opens:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:quickpoint.png?nolink |}}
 +  * **Name of the definition** - optional, can be left empty
 +  * **Storage** - either a //point folder// - can be used already existing or created a new one - or the quick point can be saved as a part of //track recording//
 +  * **Icon & Name** - points can have its designated icon (otherwise the will inherit the folder icon). The name can include special parameters (tap {{:manual:user_guide:ic_add_alt.png?nolink&30|}} button):
 +    * //name {c}// - inserts a counter of points in folder
 +    * //name {c1}// - inserts any increasing number
 +    * //name {t}// - inserts a time stamp 
 +    * //name {text}// - enables inserting editable text before saving
 +  * **Description** - optional description of point
 +===== 2. Add quick points on map =====
 +  * Center your position or shift the map screen center cross to the position where you want to place the point.
 +  * Call Quick new point function - //Menu > More functions > Quick new point// and tap on a previously created point definition
