changing the date

My version of CPN shows tidal data for 1 month in advance of the current date. I can get the correct info by bringing up the tidal chart and clicking on the left arrow but it would be much better if I could use the info that is already on the screen.

So which version of OpenCPN is "My version" ?
What date is your system time set to?

Re: changing the date

Thanks for the quick reply. It's version 3.0.2. I don't recall having an opportunity to set the date when it was installed. However, I did the installation with help from someone more versed in computers, so he may have set it without my knowledge.

Re: changing the date

You can't set the date for OpenCPN separately.
What date does your desktop widget show?
It's usually in the lower right corner.

Re: changing the date

Thomas,

Thanks. The date was incorrect on my laptop. I should have thought of that myself!!
