    If I take either the name of a variable star such as VSX J000819.3+464455 or its co-ordinates 00 08 19.32 +46 44 55.2 and paste them into the variable star

      If I take either the name of a variable star such as
      VSX J000819.3+464455 or its co-ordinates 00 08 19.32 +46 44 55.2 and
      paste them into the variable star plotter I get "star not found" or a
      chart for R AND respectively.

      Thanks for the bug report. You are right that the name VSX J000819.3 +464455 fails. I got a chart to print using GSC 3246-277 instead and the coordinates

        Thanks for the bug report. You are right that the name 'VSX J000819.3
        +464455' fails. I got a chart to print using GSC 3246-277 instead and
        the coordinates also printed a chart. Remember, the coordinates go
        into the RA and Dec fields and not the name field.

        I suspect the bug with the VSX name is related to the plus sign. I'm
        looking into it.

        This is fixed and you can search by names with odd characters in them now. M.
