Stellarium Question

Hi All, need some help with Stellarium please. Attached screen shot shows looking towards the south, with south in the center. Should to the left of South be South East? I have checked my settings and can't seem to find anything to help. I even checked the settings in my desktop and all is good. I tried uninstall and new install, no help there either.

There is a setting to reverse E-W to replicate viewing thru telescope, and a similar for N-S. I’m not at my computer now (and won’t be until late tomorrow) so can’t be more specific from memory. I have the shortcut visible at the bottom of the screen. If no one else casts light on this, I’ll get back to this when I can.

Thanks Barry.........found the solution.
Configuration > Extras > Show Flip Buttons. Ticked the box and it added it to the tool bar on the bottom of the screen. Once it's on the tool bar you just have to click on it to enable it, and hey presto, the compass points are correct.

Good to hear. Stellarium is great when you get it configured for your preferences. Also useful then to save settings, and save view if you want to start from a particular view.
