decided to start a new thread because this is a problem I have with multiple versions, and I don't think we'll do anything about it before the 3.2 release (which will be great!!!)
Background: I'm using opencpn
running on Linux64bit (Ubuntu/Debian) and with US NOAA ENC charts
, mostly in the San Francisco
area. The charts
there have lots of stuff and there are lots of different charts that have to be quilted for a smooth display. This generally works nicely, but not always. Concrete examples include:
1) when panning using the cursor keys, quilted charts often don't appear automatically or only after I panned them more than 20% into the window. The bottom chart indicator shows dark green instead of bright green chart indicators. Clicking on them fixes the quilting (i.e. charts load, get quilted correctly, and indocator toggles to bright green). This is repeatable and also dependable on concrete charts and cursor movement: panning from "Central Bay" to "South Bay" makes South Bay chart appear after about
20%, but panning in the opposite direction will never show the correct "Central Bay" chart (until I explicitly select it by clicking in the dark green chart indicator).
2) I tried hard to get rid of the chart boundaries, but they always show (e.g. unselecting "Show Chart Outlines" changes them from reddish striped lines to blue lines instead of not showing them at all)
3) For some charts (e.g. detailed chart for Redwood City Channel entrance in South Bay) the quilting is not perfect: the charts are offset both horizontally and vertically.
The first problem is clearly the most annoying because it forces me to switch from keyboard to mouse (which I often have disabled).
