chart group

I made several chart-groups, the tabs are in sequence of making the group.

Now I have 2 questions:
  1. How to change a name of a group?
  2. How to change the sequence of tabs?

Re: chart group

1.You can't change the name as such so it's a question of delete and create a new group with the correct name.
2.You can't change the order. Delete all groups and recreate them in the correct order.

I use chart groups a lot, and the lack of these features does not bother me to much, but that's me.

There is obviously a lot of space for development here......to make this feature more in line with user expectations.

Re: chart group

You could always edit the "opencpn.ini" file. Look for "[Groups]". You should understand how it works.


Just be sure to make a backup of the file in case you mess it up

@ Jean-Marie
Deleting and re-creating is easier and more secure.
