Is tracking on or off?

I am using v2.3.1

I may be stupid but when using the toggle tracking button - how do you know whether tracking has been activated or stopped? Is there an indication on the screen I haven't seen or do you have to wait to see whether the track appears behind the 'boat'.

The square around the toggle icon is shown as a single line (switched off) or as a double line (switched on).

The buttons in the ToolBar becomes slightly larger and grayer when the are pressed on. Also what NAV says.

Mine may not be the only set of eyes that have trouble distinguishing these fine details. Particularly with the track, tide and currents icons I have great difficulty detecting whether they are "on" or "off".

Re: Is tracking on or off?

Hi
<As I use OpenCPN during my summer trip, I erased my trace by error. I would like to restore it on my file in order to keep my trip in mind
Is someone can help me on this matter ?
Thank's a lot.

If you still have the OpenCPN logfile, download https://github.com/downloads/nohal/L...kExtractor.exe and you can reconstruct the track from the logbook entries there.
If you don't have the log anymore, the track is gone unfortunately.

I agree, itīs very difficult to see whether it's on or off.
I had to look at the example and compare with my own screen for quite a while before I saw the difference.
The same goes for current and tide.
