Open CPN - RM Cumulative distances between waypoints

Is there a way to see the cumulative distance between waypoints on a route? When I select the Properties for a particular route, the properties table lists the total distance of the route at the top and the distance between each waypoint within the body. All good, but i'm interested in the running sum of distance. Most of my routes are on the ICW and have many waypoints. Having a running sum would enable me to determine how far from waypoint x to waypoint y. Currently i have to manually total all the distances between each point to get that total distance.


Any ideas?


Thanks,


NDow

Hover over the route and look at the yellow information tag.

That works. Thanks for the tip.


All the information in the yellow information tag is in the property table of each route - except that cumulative total. Would be nice to have it in the property table as well.


Regardless, i now have a solution.



Thanks much,
