Route & Mark Manager widths

This is a small thing, but slightly irritating.

It's been said that settings in OpenCPN are "persistent" however in the Route & Mark Manager I can drag the window out to a readable size, and set the column widths to a convenient width but when I open Route & Mark Manager again, the widths have reverted back to being narrow again.

Would be nice if they persisted.

Ryan

Re: Feature Requests

Ryan, this is already part of flyspray bug #2276. It's not just the Routes & Marks Manager - several other dialog boxes don't remember their settings either, & it would be nice if they did. This bug currently has 3 other votes, but if you'd like to add your vote, it would bump it up the priority stack & maybe we'd see some more action on it.

Re: Feature Requests

I have not read through all of this as it is a massive thread, if my wishes are already mentioned (likely) I apologize for doubleposting.


Two wishes really
1. Multiscreen support. I would love to be able to either run two instances of O on the same computer to have different views on different screens. F. instance different maps or zoomlevels on the same time, og radar on one screen, map on the ohter and so on. There is probably a much better way of doing this than running two instances of O, but it was the easiest way to explain it..


2. "Better" colorpalette on night color scheme. I find the built in colorsets hard to read at night. They work fine with dimming down the light, but at the same time small objects like depth soundings and contours are almost impossible to see. Not a problem far out to sea, but annoying when you are closer to the coast. I believe just changing colors on text, lines and shading would make this a lot easier.


Thanks for a brilliant product tho. My main navigation on board.

It's already possible to run two instances of O even on Windows. One "main" and one portable. Let the main connect to all surrounding NMEA connections and transfer it via network UDP, local host, to the portable.
See here for more info: https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...rtable_opencpn

For the future we may hope for a multi window support to be included in one instance of OCPN, I do agree,
Håkan

Split screen will be a feature with the next version of OpenCPN.
And when combining with a parallel portable install on the same machine one can get up to four different "views" then. Should be sufficient....

In this document I describe split-screen configuration using a portable OpenCPN version:
