GRIB plugin problems

Hello,

Just started using OpenCPN, very impressed so far.

Trying to use the GRIB overlay plugin, in the instructions it shows a long lost of preferences to set it up but when I click preferences I get only two check boxes:

[] use High Definition Graphics
[] Show metres/sec for Wind Speed

Then when I click the GRIB button on the toolbar I just get the option to define the folder/file where the GRIB data is rather than the GRIB control panel pop-up as described in the instructions.

Anyone had similar problems?

Thanks

Hambler...
What you see is actually no problem, you are just reading the documentation for the latest beta but using the older stable release. Either use the docs bundled with your installed version or install the newest beta and help us with testing...
