Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

Ah I see the menu bar of the plugin uses this page. It needs to be fixed there.

Two ways to solve the problem:
First: Give this page to the place where it was before.
Second: Edit the plugin, update, and recompile it

As you can!

Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

Gille, I think I see the image you added.

Vector Palette | Official OpenCPN Homepage
SHOM Style

Now you would like to include a link to an xml file?
Is that correct?

I have not yet figured out how to Upload to my File Directory files that are not image files. I notice that someone has managed to do that for the first vector file download. The path seems to be
http://opencpn.org/ocpn/sites/defaul...ad/s57data.zip

I have not figured out how to use that download directory.

Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

High Resolution Background download found here.
Chart Sources | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Yes, the Time Interval matters because the checking for boundaries is determined by the weather_routing time interval. Make the time interval less if the boundary is missed. It takes more computing time however.

Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

Gilletarom, we have not found out how to upload to the
OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage
directory!!
This function could be very useful. I hope someone will explain how to use it.
-----

On another matter.

OpenCPN Android User Manual

How do we create such a thing without recreating the entire manual?
How do we make it really simple?
What is necessary? - Just "Getting Started with OpenCPN Android"?

We should discuss the best and most efficient approach. I do not want to repeat things in the manual already! But we need to provide guidance for the most troublesome new user aspects.

Any ideas or thoughts would be welcome.

If you look in the wifi 4.2, you will see that the page on the files to change colors, is updated since last night.
Dave has a post about it in the thread of 4.2.
And it was he who uploaded the file, I sent him directly at his request.
After that, I realized the update of the page and the construction of download web link.
On this subject, talk to Dave.

Gilletarom.

Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

Look for Icons folder Gille. Also the user manual watchdog seems to be working.

Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

I am trying to add a few things to the documentation and can't find what bdbcat wrote regarding special File Uploads.

I know Gilletarom pointed me to the Bdbcat post, as we both had the same question, but I cannot seem to find it now. I would like to use that post to update this page which I just started.

File Upload | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Thanks for any help.

Re: Opencpn 4.1.1108 Documentation

For security reasons, Dave asked me to send him the file on a link he had given me. Then he sent me a link so I can return "linker" file in the manual page 42.

See with Dave.
