Having the second small UI popup with the action options, is kind of a PIA to use in a hurry...
would be nice to see that reworked into the main UI somehow... vOv

I assume you are referring to the little menu which opens up with the 8 buttons to select?

What would you think about a row of toggles to the right of each tank?  Each column of toggles would replace the buttons.  So, for example:

 

FL-TX1800 Fuel Tank    1  2  810  809.5  99.9%  o  o  o  o  o  o  o

Where the toggles would be in the following order (the o's above):  

Highlight  Edit  Transfer In  Transfer Out  Balance  Dump  Lock

I would have them abbreviated, maybe with tooltips when hovering

I'm not sure about the Edit functionality, I'll have to see what's up with that.  Seems like a very cheaty thing.

Also, for all, I'm thinking about moving the settings from the custom settings window into a stock settings window.  I'd like to hear some feedback before I do (either pro or con)

Edit is very cheaty! Maybe disabled in a config file by default, but usefull for debuging things.

YES... abolutely this... that was my initial thought, to have buttons to the right exactly like that... wanted to think on it moar, before I suggested it or something like it...

Hmmm... just me, but I would like:
Lock, Transfer In, Transfer Out, Balance, Dump, Highlight, then maybe Edit...??
(thats basically closer to the order of most used to less used buttons, for me...) vOv

Maybe to keep the buttons small, just single letter would be enuff to label them since they're all unique? ie L, I, O B, D, H, E ... vOv

I took the order from the order in the menu, your suggestion makes sense

except that Edit will be available when in an advanced debug mode, to be specified in the settings page

@Stone Blue just an FYI, I hadn't been thinking of buttons, I was thinking of toggles.  Buttons would work just as well if not better.

I might make it optional, buttons vs toggles. I'll have to test them both
