Adjustable Depth Settings with cm93 Charts ?

I don't see a way to change the depth settings (Shallow Depth, Safety Depth and Deep Depth) for cm93 charts. I prefer to display Deep Depth as anything over 6 ft (1.83 Meters) since my draft is 4.4 ft.

Is this possible with cm93 charts? If so, I guess this would be a Feature Request.

CM93 is a vector chart and the depth settings in Toolbox->Vector Charts apply. The depth settings that can be applied to any given location varies greatly with cm93, depending, on the origin of the information. There are built in, preset cutoff depths. It is not possible to adjust the depth colors to intermediate values. As this is a feature of the chart, OpenCPN can't do much about it. This is explained in Vector Chart Display | Official OpenCPN Homepage section "Depth Settings"

Thanks. I see what you mean. The DRVAL1 and DRVAL2 values in the S57 chart and the CM93 chart are different in the area that I was doing the comparison.
