Save Time With Auto Enter Times in LogTen Pro for Mac

Enter your total time, and let LogTen Pro do the rest...

In most cases we, as pilots, will need to enter the same value for several types of flight time, and these will be the same for a certain phase of our flying. For example, a student will most likely be entering the same values for Total Time and Dual Received on every flight, at least until they start flying solo. On the other hand, most airline pilots will be entering XC on every flight, so why should they have to type it in every time they enter a flight? They don't if they're using LogTen Pro of course. :)

Open the Preferences menu (shortcut: command+comma), and select the "Time" tab. This dialog displays all of the available time fields, and an "auto-fill total time" checkbox for each. Tick the ones you would like to be automatically updated when the total time changes (you can always override the value if you want it to be different from the total time).

Now whenever the Total Time value is changed, either by typing in a new value, or by changing the Actual Departure or Actual Arrival times the ticked times will be updated as well. When you make that first solo, or get that sweet airline job you've worked so hard for, just go back to the Time tab and change it as needed.
