I don't care if the file is corrupted if the program gets stuck then we should fix that. Can you post the file?
Sure, here is one that hangs eventually for me. OpenCPN freezes.

It is too big to upload here so it will be in the main directory of
Opencpn Beta File Thingie rguser rgpass

Re: New Grib Presentation

In updating the Grib_pi plugin for various small improvements, one improvement is to fixed and minimum spacing. In windows the menu is not free to shrink vertically and there is too much empty space when I take a screenshot.

Can someone add the ability to shrink the menu vertically?
It will help us get meaningful images for the documentation.

(Linux screenshots are better, because the space is closed up, but I don't run that.)

Thanks

Re: New Grib Presentation

For Grib_pi, In windows, the menu is not free to shrink vertically and there is too much empty space when I take a screenshot. It would be even better if the space was automatically eliminated, and the Menu would automatically adjust to what is needed.

----
HOWEVER, I don't need it now. I have cut out the blank areas in the screenshots.
