@bdbcat - I also haven't seen any crash in OpenCPN 3.3.604 yet.
- What do you exactly mean by "@kubek Your text in screenshot is good, how do you set that?"
- I found on the internet two nice sound files which we can used for AIS alarm etc. and one very irritating/annoying for VERY CRITICAL issue.
- Depth alarm could be addition to the landfall alarm, sometimes I needed to sail near coast and I had to check depth very often in this situation depth alarm could be useful.
@dave We've got a couple of longish days coming up over the next few weeks. If its going to crash I should have something for you by mid July. My crashes seem to be time and distance related so not much gets proven by a 3 or 4 hour day.
something new...?Specific to Right-click menu? routes don't delete the way they used to...say, I create a route.... I Right-Click and choose to delete it... routeline disappears (-it may take two tries) but leaves the waypoints which need deleting one by one... or in route-manager can be done ok (ctrl key functionality is nice here! thanks!) ...actually, again it may take two tries from the right click menu....
I sorta liked the ol' way. Right click a route and it gets deleted. I don't mind the new "Are you sure you want to do that?" whine because I have the habit of ignoring it anyways (sigh)
(and not to harp on a half-baked peeve, but I feel this protection of waypoints is derived from the semantics confusion between MARKS and waypoints.... waypoints are integral PARTs of a route-Marks are not)
Oh well, try it out in a spare moment and see if it does this for you
You get hundred points for discovering my favourite bug in 3.3.604 - it's fixed in git since last week, will be in the next beta...
Re deletion confirmation: The people wanting the confirmation were louder than you
- was that what I was supposed to do. The cut and paste above was all I could extract from that dialog.
below the instructions for 'Crash reporting' found in (#1) of this thread :
30. Semi-automatic Crash reporting for Windows.
Occasionally we get reports of crashes in the field which are not reproducible. This change allows the
creation and export of a Crash Report file, which may be sent to the developers for post mortem analysis.
It works like this:
a. Install and run OpenCPN normally. You will see no difference unless a crash occurs.
b. If a crash occurs, you will be presented with a new dialog that says "OpenCPN has stopped working"
c. Choose "What does the report contain", then the button "Export"
d. Save the .zip file, and post the resulting file to the Forum.
Please note that the "Send Report" option is not (yet) implemented, so NOTHING WILL HAPPEN if you choose this option.
Also, for fun, you may test this option by the keystroke Alt-F12. This will induce a benign crash, and give you a chance to see what it will look like before the real thing happens.
