Hi Felipe - I would also like the ability to annotate my charts a bit better, drawing in new breakwaters, uncharted bommies & such. But there's already a way to do text annotations: Create a waypoint, edit it to add the text you want, & pick a non-displaying icon like Red-/Blue-/Green-Track (OCPNv2.7 is supposed to allow waypoints with an icon of [none] to display as well, but v2.5 doesn't).
I like my annotations to show up easily so I change the text to bold red
: Open the Toolbox
, go to the Language/Fonts
tag, Select Marks
from the Text Elements drop down, & Choose a Bold
Font in Red
. I find a 6 point works well, but experiment
to find what works for you.
Which brings up another request
- could the Marks also be able to display in different colors please? Thanks!
