Capture Plan issue with Pause settting


BYN 2.06 premium edition.  Nikon d5500.

I recently upgraded to premium edition so that I could save a lengthy capture plan for the solar eclipse. I upgraded to 2.05 when I went to premium edition and now upgraded to 2.06. Saving capture plan is only possible with premium edition so I would not have seen this issue on earlier versions but it did occur on 2.05 and 2.06.

The problem.  I entered multiple lines in the capture plan so that I could save them for the eclipse.  The first line I used 600s for pause between shots.  The lines after that have zero pause as I want to take various shutter speeds as fast as possible when the total eclipse occurs.  When I save the plan, BYN plugs 600s pause into all the lines I left zero.  If I plug something other than zero in those lines,  they remain untouched.  It appears to be a bug and I do have a manual workaround by manually editing the plan text file.

I have the same issue. I created a capture plan of 20 lines, Every five lines is a routine, that routine has a pause of 300 seconds on lines five, ten, and fifteen. I generally test it before saving it but when I Start Capture for testing, all the values change to 300 after line five. If I save as, before testing I get the same results. The only way I have been able to make it work is by adding one second to all the zero values and my three lines keep the 300 seconds value. This inconvenience adds time to the my plan.
