Tore, it seems a bit of an explanation of what Copy/Paste is is called for here.

Do not mix copy/paste with saving or importing files. It is two different mechanisms.

There is no change in this release to the import/export functions of the route manager.

What is added is the ability to copy route/track/wpt to your computers paste buffer (sometimes called the clipboard). The paste buffer is an internal memory managed by your operating system and shared between all applications running on the same computer.

So what happens when you select "Copy" is the KML format for what nav objects you had selected gets put into this memory area. It can then be accessed for "Paste" by all running applications, be it Google Earth, QtVlm, Microsoft Office or any other. Some apps, like Earth and QtVlm, will understand the KML format and convert it to the correct objects in their representation. Others will just see a text. It depends on which app you chose to Paste to.

You cannot "paste into a directory", that's technically a contradiction in terms. You can only paste into a running application.

If you want to store a text file with KML format you can Paste into any running text file editor. Open your favourite text file editor, open a new empty file window, and then paste into that. Now you can save the result as a KML file.

So for your needs, you can use copy/paste as a data exchange mechanism between running applications on the same computer, but you cannot use copy/paste for data exchange between your computer and another system (such as your phone). For data exchange with another system you still need to transfer a physical file, like before.

Good catch! Caused by the new Great Circle rubber-banding. Fixed in master.

Good catch too! Pretty interesting effect.

The real bug was that the chart buttons code had a stray "Show" statement inside it, so when hiding with Ctrl-B the window was automatically re-showing itself. And somehow that made the pan key event stick, for reasons that I am not totally clear on... But fixing the auto re-Show-ing fixes the panning bug too.

Fixed in master.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.814 Released

Jesper..

Good fix. There were related problems with other hot-keys that are now fixed. I think it had something to do with not seeing the key-up event.

Ah. Of course. Thank you. Pan => possible change in visible charts => repaint chart buttons => show window => steal focus => key up event gets eaten.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.814 Released

Jesper..

Thanks for the special copy/paste tip. I normally export direct from qtVlm as a .gpx file to an OruxMaps directory on my PC from which I can copy/paste to my Galaxy virtual drive for OruxMaps access. It would be great if an .kml export option could be added to qtVlm.

Otherwise I can copy the optimized route file to my C:/ORUXMAPS/COPY-PASTE.txt and save it as an xxxx.kml file for later copy/paste to OruxMaps as over.

Going to add this one to my list of very helpful feedback received
Could you be at least a little bit specific about what's that much annoying you next time?

Many thanks

Pavel

This is the case. Just ask for a file with .kml extension when exporting

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.814 Released

Can you explain, in very simple steps(for a non-techie) how to overlay the winlink downloaded grib files onto the Cmap charts used with the OpenCPN operating system. Thank you.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.814 Released

Hello dpons...

Are you over here yet?
Looking at your bugs reported for Debian 6, wxWidgets 2.8.10
OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.802 Released

I see the arrow graphic issue, should be fixable.

But I cannot understand the failure to recover from minimize. Works fine for me when I click the upper right minimize icon, app goes to the taskbar, click on the taskbar and it reappears.

More information, please.

Thanks
Dave

Icnoships...

Hey, welcome aboard.

Snow Leopard compile problem with isnan:

There is a known wxWidgets issue with this.

#11219 (wxIsNaN doesn't compile on Snow Leopard if cmath is included after wx/math.j)

Workaround: Please edit the file include/geodesic.h and remove the line:

Code:
#include <cmath>
and let us know how it goes.

Also, your input on UI issues in Snow Leopard will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Dave
