Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Hello Jongough,

It is impossible to create a boundary point alone with the first icon. If I create a point and then rigth clic, the point desappear immédiateley.
BUT
It is possible to use the context menu command "Remove point from path". And then we have a point alone. and itis possible to creat e a boundary point alone, with the second icon.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Håkan,
The scaling is controlled by OCPN and it was felt that icons should be approx 9mm per side to ease of use, so when you reduce the scale to less than 0 there is no scaling done. I am not sure who made the decision, but.... It is out of my hands. I did get the change to allow non tablet users change the scales, but these changes were not really initially meant for desktop/laptop users.

On my system the right click on the OCPN menu bar does show the window allowing you to pick which icons to show. But you do have to right click on an icon, if you right click anywhere else on that tool bar you will got nothing.

I've tried with the Traditional menu bar and changed the scale. From 0 to +5 icons growth, but no changes between -5 and 0 and they really need to be smaller than 0 size.
My screen resolution is; 1366 x 768 (Win10)

BTW, the right mouse click tools bar menu is gone in Traditional style. I mean the menu to choose OCPN icons in the bar. I'll mention it also in thread 4.1.1301.
(In Journeyman the right click menu is functional.)

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Gilletarom,
To create a boundary point you use the Boundary Point tool (the one like a diamond with a red dot in the middle). The Boundary tool is for drawing closed boundaries not for just dropping points. I have disallowed the removing of a boundary point from a two point boundary in patch 613, you will now have to delete the boundary and insert a boundary point.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Hello Jongough,

Sorry to bother you again about your plugin. Especially since these are minor details that intrigues me most of the time.
I play currently displayed permanently with the toolbar.
If I turn on the left icon, that of the boundary, while in the icon bar of OpenCPN, the right of your plugin icon appears identical to that of your toolbar with a state "On ".
If I turn it any other icon on your toolbar, then an icon appears in the toolbar of OpenCPN icons, but this icon is just the trace of a state "On".

I do not feel that this is normal. But, who said. Can you explain. Thank you in advance.

Here join 5 screen copy. The first two with "boundary" and, for example, the three other with "Text".

OK - thanks. I will continue to use the smoother Journeyman.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Gilletarom,
Patch 615 should sort this out. The OD toolbar now tracks the OCPN toolbar for icon colours.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

In CrowdIn, the basic language file for OD (in english) is not yet present. In the zip-file with the source code, the langauge file seems not to be up to date.

Gilletarom,
The 'Close Window' icon in the preferences is the same as pressing cancel, so no changes will be saved. As far as I know, and please correct me, this is standard behaviour for windows & Linux and I think Mac. The only time changes are saved is if 'OK' or 'Apply' is clicked.
Jon
Jon, do you think it would be worthwhile to make this statement in the User Manual?
Does it apply to Linux, Windows and Mac OS-x?
Thanks..

On a Mac usually setting changes are immediately in effect. However most developers doesn't know how a Mac works and so OpenCPN doesn't act like a Mac software.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

NAV...

I see it here, for example, to French:

https://crowdin.com/translate/opencpn/173/en-fr

Am I missing something?

Yes, it is not up to date. I have asked Jongough about this. Many and many items are not present.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Jon, I tried to compile with fresh git fetch again.
and followed Readme.md

Requires latest OCPN beta as it is using version 1.13 of the plugin API
-- Copied latest to opencpn.lib to ocpn_draw/build
--Made new images folder C:\Users\...\ocpn_draw_pi\images
--Copied \ocpn_draw_pi\data\[all images] to ocpn_draw_pi\images

Still missing a file in the git repos. wxsvg.lib I think.

I've a bat file for this. Use it if you like but you have to change the initial path to OpenCPN repository. Run it from OD_pi\build.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Rick,
You need to get the latest binary dependencies for windows, from here:
Download opencpnplugins from SourceForge.net
or
Download opencpnplugins from SourceForge.net
if you are using VC2010

These contain the required wxSVG and other stuff. It is in the Dev Doco (section 3.1 Get the binary dependencies), but I fell through this issue as well as I did not realise it had changed.

Re: Ocpn-Draw and Boundary

Gilletarom,
I have no knowledge of crowdin, how to use it, create the files needed to upload or how to upload them. I have just created an account, but after that I am confused. Pavel did the initial implementation of language support into OD, but I have no idea how. All suggestions welcome.

Jon
