Lets see what Gilletarom has to say, as the feature was his idea originally.
I understand the reaction of Thomas Cagney. The two buttons are difficult to explain in the wiki. I want to update a website on OpenCPN
, French, and the current
state of things, I agree that it is not good.
Several questions are raised by Thomas cagney.
1) The first: Two buttons that do things that seem contradictory
2) The second: The title of the button "Export all visible ...." is wrong.
1) For the first question:
Note that the function of the button "Export all" is contained in everything that is possible with the button "Export all visible." Indeed, it is possible to perform the function "Export all" with the button "Export all visible ..." opening all eyes.
I just think a simple idea: You can remove the button "Export all". Just keep only the new button. In this case, you can still leave the layers include in the backup.
Now, if we want to keep both buttons, then yes, you need to harmonize their operations. And in this case, I admit that it is best to exclude layers for the two buttons.
Personally, I hope that the export function is flexible and allows users maximum freedom. One button is needed: "Export all visible ...". Let's remove the old one.
And if you follow my idea, then it will not be difficult to explain in the wiki.
2) For the second question:
I think I noticed a post in the thread of 1309, a OCPN user confused "Export all that is visible in the manager Routes / Tracks / WP and layers" and "Export all that is visible on the screen
. "It seems to me that the user thought that I wanted to export the map ... Obviously not.
The title of the button is to understand quite easily that this button is used to export objects that are in all tabs Manager (or only 3 tabs).
Note that if you delete the old button, it will be easy to understand for everyone. And if, in addition, a message rollover button helps explain a little more what he does, then we should easily find a more suitable title for this new button.
3°) third topic:
This evening, testing the two buttons, I have see a problem. I will discuss this issue in the tracker
