Task don´t make sense error when it does make sense.

Hello there. Having an issue here that I cant really replicate as I was not the scorekeeper and I dont have the database installed, but as I recall it here it goes: When making a task on 1.2.12 and setting a start cylinder around takeoff place (Takeoff 400 mts, Start 10.000 mts, turnpoint1 400mts, goal 400mts) the software shows an error as the takeoff is within the start. This did not seems to happen at all with version 1.2.8. Some times the problem does not shows, so you need to make the task without the start, and then try to insert the start as the same takeoff with a bigger radious. That should do the trick and pop up the error.

It says it does not make sense, but it sure does, as we want an exit start around the takeoff place but we want to validate the flying distance before taking the start, the speed section would be shorter as one should figure out, but the whole flight distance would be ok.

This should be taken into consideration as there are some places when you need to fly a few km before hitting the start and many pilots don´t even get that far, so it´s important to have a way for measuring their performance based on distance between takeoff and next turnpoint, even when the race section has not been started. This could also affect the validity of the day, as some pilots that land just passing the start cylinder where getting minimum distance even when the total flyied distance was 5 or 6 km above the minimum distance.

Hi Daniel, the error was presented to hector Zoia also happened with other versions .. the error is random and often occurs when you edit a task. Probe re-edit a task and the error .. Apology not capture the screen
