Docking mode controls don't work on the map screen

Question

when I was doing a mission with a craft without normal engines and just RCS systems and tried to do rendezvous, when I went to the map view to fine tune the encounter, Instead of thrusting forwards when I pressed RT I just spun around and had to scrap the mission, I don't know if this is a bug or if you just can't use docking mode on the map view but I'm pretty annoyed

P.S. I was using linear not rotation in docking mode I'm pretty sure It's a problem with the map view

The controls are different in normal and map mode, that's probably why. Try familiarizing yourself with both sets of controls

If you want to use rcs thrusters for forward thrust , then you need to enable fore by throttle in the editor. You can now use thrust /throttle as normal when in map mode.

It's best if you can do this in the VAB as it will set all rcs blocks placed in symmetry  to fore by throttle. 

It can be done in flight it just means you have to click on and activate it on each rcs thruster block seperately.

Hope this helps.

What is the difference between?
