Re: OpenCPN auto anchor mark?
I dont see the benifit of an auto anchor mark...what if after 15 min you find your location is crap and move 200m away to a better spot now you have two anchors shown. I like the option of putting the mark down when I am happy and also add a bit of text about the anchorage.
Without entering in the debate whether this functionality is good or not , I would say it's still in the code .
You have to find in your init file : "AutoAnchorDrop=0" and change it to AutoAnchorDrop=1
Nevertheless never tested it
Thanks, JP. The default must have gone from 0 to 1 in some release. I just installed 2.5 on a clean machine so it didn't pick up all my old settings and therefore I thought it was gone. Really appreciate the help.
