Export GPX issue

Hi, hope I didn't miss the answer to this but can't seem to find it in a search. I'm new to OpenCPN, so I imported my routes and waypoints via GPX (from OziExplorer). Seemed to work fine...I went through and changed all the icons to ones that I had brought into UserIcons (via the OpenCPN web site).

The problem is, these waypoints won't export to a GPX file, only a select few are saved. I need to install them to other computers on board a ship, and to be able to change waypoint/route sets during a cruise (it's a research vessel).

It seems that the exported GPX file retains the original icon names, which are unknown to OpenCPN so they default to 'Airport'. I addition, they don't all export anyway, many are missing completely. The routes seem to export okay however. Just not the waypoints.

Any ideas anyone? Thanks for any help...
