If you are going to remove a useful tool, namely the jump to drop down menu accessed by right button clicking your capacitor, please make the replacement "Capital Navigation Panel" usable.
The biggest fail of this new UI interaction is that previously by using the drop down menu you could see player cynos and their location.
This had the advantage of both knowing where your jumping and more importantly NOT having to broadcast a cyno.
Im sure most capital pilots already knew about the capital navigational panel previously, and while useful for the occasional check against range and fuel consumption, i myself tended to ignore it most of the times since it took up valuable screen space and there was much better option (the now removed drop down menu)
There is also have been issues reported by others that this tool doesn't work in laggy situations. Remember that lag also affects broadcasting meaning player cynos will be difficult , if not impossible, to find.
A.) return the old system which most found useful. Unlikely given CCPs tendency not to backtrack on (bad) feature additions.
B.) Provide a new tab under capital navigation for active player cynos (show name and location), and remove its resize restrictions to allow docking with other windows. (ie tab hidden under the overview window).
