Re: Help in creating 2 icons
O should save your choice for WPT icons. To do that, Right click the waypoint, choose Properties,then there's a drop down list of icons which, if you made a UserIcons folder in the right place, (on XP its in Program Files\OpenCPN\UserIcons\... win7 its same but called Program Data )- click the ? on Toolbar will tell you the same...) will include yours.
If you want to Backup/save that one waypoint or all of them, goto RouteManager on the toolbar,and look for the "Export Waypoint" button or "Export All" (which is a total backup including routes,tracks,wpts)....
The export format is "GPX" and this can be opened in lots of Nav stuff- Mapsource, Ozi, Nobletec, PolarNavy etc but you won't see your icons, because these apps won't have em aboard-they are OPCN only so these others will use their defaults...
Xtra, advanced...ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE NEWER BETAS,(and in the upcoming NewVersion! to load your own icons as a default every time you make a WPT in OPCN by editing the ini file below [Settings/Others]...as in DefaultWPIcon=diamond or whatever.
