Maximize the screen display

There are many features of OpenCPN that take time to discover. This one is good for those netbook computers with small screens.

With position, COG and SOG in the Dashboard the loss of the Status Bar is minimal.

Re: Maximize the screen display

OOPS! Have found the 'black piano keys' bug with the 'Enable Touchscreen interface' checked.

Also find a 4 second delay on the Toolbar auto-hide is about right.

Re: Maximize the screen display

Terry,

How about adding this to the manual?

https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...it_user_manual

Perhaps a new topic here:

Re: Maximize the screen display

Terry,

I have done the Maximise Display page:

https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...screen_display

Your Portable OpenCPN HowTo doc has a lot of images. Could you post them seperately in a zip? Then I can use the docx text and upload the images to work with this.

Mike
