Stupid question - from stupid guy :lol: :
I was not able to find anywhere description of different flight tracks: open distance, flat and FAI triangles, etc. used in standalone Leonardo installation (dowloaded 6 months ago). Many thanks to your anwer...proposals, etc.

When you view a flight you can hover the mouse over the different scoring types on the left side and a little image will apear that expalins graphically the way the distance is calcalated

heh... try to do it ;-)..... works on open distance (http://www.paraglidingforum.com/leonardo/flight/271431) ... not on triangles (e.g. http://www.paraglidingforum.com/leonardo/flight/271202 or http://www.paraglidingforum.com/leonardo/flight/271370)....it is not great problem for public, but Ineed to know e.g. FAI triangle closing gap.... I thought, that I found it "somewhere".....

Yes you are right.

The FAI formulas are used to calculate the triangles, i'll search for the definitions and post them

Thanks Manolis:-)... I will do it, too. I have experience, that there is not any strictly criterias, in closing gaps especially (FAI triangle and others), each competition hase something different...therefore my question is focused on description for tracks in Leonardo ;-).... or you can give me basis direction....I will find it myself... and quoted here :-)
