Your observing plans should not specify flats. When you have everything ready, load the AutoFlat.vbs script, start it, and it will ask for your flat plan, then it will ask if you are ready. See ACP Help, Automatic Sky Flats, Dome or Artificial Light Flats section (scroll down).

Yes, there is a post-flat slew, This will be frixed in the next release to honor the "Safe to Slew Anywhere" option. For now, here's how to disable the post-autoflat slew to low altitude. Locate the following code in AutoFlat.vbs:

' Not chaining. If dusk, slew horizontal to avoid dew/dust during wait.
' Minimize dome motion by slewing directly down in altitude
If Not Dawn Then

Change the If statement to read

If False Then
