How to turn off MOB?

I'm brand new to OpenCPN and in the process of playing around with it, I hit the MOB mark. I have searched on every menu trying to figure out how to delete it, but haven't found the answer.

What have I missed?

Re: How to turn off MOB?

Hello sneuman,
It's a safety feature so a MOB dosen't get deleted by accident. To delete, right click the waypoint, select waypoint properties, and change the icon to any other icon, save then right click icon again and delete.
I hope I stated that correctly. Good luck.

john
