Opencpn anchor watch

since upgrading to Version 4.0.0 Build 2015-01-08 my anchor watch guard zone doesnt work. The anchor radius does, but usually I can drop a mark and type -50 and it will alert me if I drift into that circle. Is this a problem with the version?? Any fix? Thanks.. I really like the OpenCpn anchor alarm

What exactly does not work as described in Anchor Watch | Official OpenCPN Homepage ?
I have just tried and everything seems to do what the documentation says.

Re: Opencpn anchor watch

this part doesnt work:

To get protection from the wind and a bit of northerly swell, we have really anchored to close to the beach. To keep an eye on this potential danger we set another mark on the beach.



This time we change the "Mark Name" to -150, this means that if the boat comes within 150 meters of this mark, the alarm is set off. Green circle, OK to be inside. Red circle OK to be outside.

Re: Opencpn anchor watch

Did you right-click that wpt and selected "set anchor watch" from
the context menu? It is not enough to just set a name to "-150"...
