Hello,

It is a very special feature. I must implement a lot of another ones, like a NOTAMs etc.

"Search & Rescue patterns" ???
Not sure what VFR pilots would do with that.
But I am sure you know as you are asking (photos or spraying?)

As such patterns are very "square", there is probably a workaround using a script (or MS-Excel) to generate such patterns as a kml or gpx file starting from a given Lat/long point. When you have the kml file, you simply import it as "pattern" in FIF.

For the generation of gpx files, there are already existing applications; a quick Google search lead me to:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_and_rescue and https://sites.google.com/site/navigatio ... authuser=0

Generating a file externally avoid to load FIF (and his author ;) ) with too specific functions.
