Thanks for your reply, Ed. You do have a point. A Ptolemaic direction should be in zodiaco as that was the way it was used by Ptolemy.  I am not sure if this was a simplification by Ptolemy, maybe other systems existed (I need to read about Babylonian directions as described by Rumen Kolev). I do prefer directions in mundo, but that is, of course, a personal reference.
Anyhow, it is great that you already made the current functionality available. It's a unique functionality that almost no program offers, with only the exception of Morinus and Placidus (AFAIK). The last one is very expensive, Morinus seams to be not supported anymore but is still usable.
I am also working on code for primary directions but that will be in C#. That will take some time :-)

Thanks Ed, I found the help. Do you plan to add directions in mundo? I know, it's more work as you cannot really use positions in the zodiac but only in semi-arc. But it would be a great addition :-)

A question for Ed. I found the functionality for primary directions according to Ptolemy. But I could not find a help function: that would really come in handy :-) What I was wondering if the directions are only in zodiaco or also in mundo (taking the latitude of the planets into account). I am working on an article about primary directions in a Dutch magazin. I found this functionality just in time to add a description to the article and info about zodiaco/mundo would be important. Thanks for you reply!
