Sorry if this is already documented. I just couldn't figure out the right search phrases to find if this has been asked and answered before.
My dad's new(er) Windows 7 laptop
has a bigger screen
with high resolution. The default colour / color track one pixel wide is hard to see over a raster chart. He wants to improve visibility of tracks , marks , and waypoints by making them larger and a different colour, but since he sets six strings a day while prawn fishing
, I'd like to give him custom defaults rather than tell him to customise / customize each track and mark individually after creating them.
I imagine my first step would be (while OpenCPN
4.2.0 is off) to try to find its .config file, make a backup copy (with "copy of" added to filename) then open the original file in Notepad, edit a value in certain lines containing these default values, save, and open OpenCPN
again to check our changes. I've never actually tried editing a config file though.
Where should I look for default track width ?
How can I specify a bigger icon as default for marks?
Thank you for your help,
