Dear Nicolas,

thank you very very much for this, it is exactly what we needed! Very well done! The build process was painless, even the packaging straightforward. Beautiful!

Have a good day, and very best regards from Munich,

Hi Daniel,

I've just added a new point type consisting of a single point. I pushed it to git a few minutes ago.
Please test and tell me if that's what you had in mind. It looks very much like kst 1.x as far as I could see.
Also note that according to the zoom level, different points may be superimposed on your screen.

Best regards,
