Hi everybody,

I just installed OpenCPN 3.0.2 on my MAC.

It works quite well, but I cannot change the default harmonic of the software.

On my previous laptop (a PC), I just needeed to replace the default harmonic (harmonic and harmonic.idx) by new ones. It was located in the OpenCPN folder (under tcdata folder to be more precise).

On the MAC I can't find the OpenCPN folder...

Does anyone knows how to proceed ?

By the way, if interested, I have tides and currents for europe, africa and med. That's what i'm trying to install via the "new" harmonic...

In OpenCPN 3.0, multiple tidal datasets are supported - no need to replace the default one.
More on this feature in OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1624
To find the location of the user data folder, have a look at Installing OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage - it says it should be /Users/"user name"/Library/Preferences/
