The insert chart does display in O, at the correct location and scale.

Are you using 4.0 or beta version from git? I am using beta from git.

It really looks like it's not an O problem.."someone" has cut that out of the original image. It maybe it has been found inaccurate and is being updated somewhere...that would explain it.
Do you have all the charts of the area? is that navigable water behind the inset? because whether it's cut out or not, you can't see what's behind it. Is there a chart for it? Turn quilting on. There may be a better chart that covers the background and the "problem" should go away as you zoom in to a practical navigation.

I'd expect somewhere, the inset is available as its own chart and should only appear when zoomed into its area - either as a small chartlet (updated!?) or this very one ( your pdf) except ,REFS,PLYS and scale would be set up for the inset, instead of the background.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

@ Håkan
I'm using Kubuntu 14.04

Scaling Ais targets, using today’s git:
This new feature does nor work correctly with the menu bar.
*Start O with the menu bar active.
*Tick AIS->"Scale less important targets". This works OK.
*Try to un-tick AIS->"Scale less important targets"! This is not possible.
*Options->Ships_>AIS Targets->Allow scaling down targets..... is not ticked, even though the feature is active.
*So in the end no way of deactivate the scaling in the current session.

Thomas... @all
re:#*So in the end no way of deactivate the scaling in the current session."
That one is however working in Windows where I can switch the function of, although I'm using Journeyman icons and there is still some tweaking to be done.

You are right. It is literally another chart so O displays it at the correct coordinates and just leaves a white block where it was on the original chart.

Ahoy OCPN translators...

In preparation for the next Beta, all international language translation templates for OCPN have been updated and posted to crowdin for review and update.

I would like to encourage a final scrub of the translations before committing to the next Beta Release in the next few days. We will pull the final translations no sooner than 0000GMT, 22 Dec, 2015, so this should be your target.

Thanks
Dave

Confirmed. It's possible to both change target name font color and close OCPN when using Swedish.
Thanks

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

@cagney...

re: AIS target scaling menu bar logic:
*Options->Ships_>AIS Targets->Allow scaling down targets..... is not ticked, even though the feature is active.

I corrected a couple of logic holes in the code. In github now.

Now we should think of the two checkboxes in Options->Ships->AIS Targets as "enablers" of the related functions. If those boxes are unticked, then the feature (hiding moored targets, or scaling targets) is disabled.

Also, the current logic does not allow both hiding of moored targets, and scaling of unimportant targets, at the same time. This is a consequence of the toolbar tool "cycling" action. I don't know if this is going to be a functional problem, or not.

We could of course change the code so, for instance, the selections are cumulative. That is, "scaling" of targets implies automatically suppression of moored targets as well. I see no other clear way to do this if we really want the toolbar "cycling" action.

So, the cycle would go:
0. AIS ON
1. AIS OFF
2. Suppress moored targets, if enabled.
3. Suppress moored targets, if enabled, and scale unimportant targets, if enabled.

4. and then back to 0.

Also, we will need to develop a crisp, "new-user-compatible" definition of "unimportant targets". I'm sure it's mother would thing it is important, so why would OCPN not think so?

Such definition should include no reference to any tweak values in the config file, since they are not really user-space accessible.

Ideas?
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

As a start I think we should avoid the term 'unimportant' and using 'less important' instead.
As the code is now there is a fixed (changeble in options) number of most important target. Because it is a fixed number the ímportancescalelevelswitchpoint is a floating one. What is a decent number of 'full size' targets depends on your screen size I think. On a 20" display I like 15 till 20.
Do we still need the option "hide moored targets"???

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Dirk...

1. Maybe we should say "non-critical targets"

2. I think we definitely need to be able to mask moored targets.

3. Maybe masking of moored targets should not participate in the tool cycling, but be simply an independent option.

4. What exactly is the algortihm to determine "unimportant targets" in the current code, please?

Thanks
Dave

Be careful by hiding moored targets. I see lots of vessels with bad operated AIS sending the moored target bit but are underway or just leaving the harbor...

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Hello Dave,


What difference betwen :
- Scale Less Important Targets
- Scale Less Important AIS Targets
?

I suppose these two items corresponds to check box. What happens if you check
these box?

Note : I saw Pavel answers in the Crowdin. In this case, we have to get to explain, with a tooltip in options, under what conditions a target is less important than another.

2° must be translated this item :
AISShowScaled
?
