Hi Barth,

Sorry, my points were indeed not always clear.
Let's see if I can make them clearer!

I mean when creating a vector currently you can only get a linearly-spaced list of points.
I think this could be interesting, and it's quite easy to implement.

Don't worry about that. I think I can handle it.

OK. I first have to make some tests as I have a different behavior between Linux and Windows and depending on the type of dependent.
I'd like to narrow it down.

> >- Marker navigation (jump to previous/next) + using scalars
By navigation I mean being able to jump from one marker to the next easily, either via mouse or keyboard actions.
The other point is already in bugzilla: the possibility to use Kst scalars as markers (e.g. to materialize the max as a line through the whole plot).

> coordinates instead of the index)
I came to this when I did the video about images. I found lots of data indexed as a list of latitude/longitude values.
I think it would be nice to label the axes with these data instead of the plain indexes.

I don't know. I almost never use them. For me not, but I'm probably not representative.
For now I think adding the possibility to read them from a file is enough.
