Opencpn.ini - Multiple versions 4.0 & 4.1.427

When running versions OpenCPN 4.0 and 4.1.427 on same computer, I have found that when changing use from v4.0 to v4.1.427 initially

1.First rename the existing opencpn.ini to opencpn.ini.40 which saves that ini for use with v4.0 and also permits a new ini to be created for 4.1.427.

2. Then if v4.1.427 is running ok, rename that ini to opencpn.ini.41

3. Then copy the appropriate ini back to opencpn.ini before startup.

I am finding that this helps with direct bomb outs.

You will have to copy your opencpn.ini chart entries into opencpn.ini.41 to have all your charts available in v4.1.427

Rick...
Is there a bugreport in the tracker for the "direct bomb outs" with the INI file causing them? We have to fix stuff like this, not invent obscure workarounds.

Thanks

Pavel

Sorry, log says it was ocpn_draw not completing changes. See beta thread post. No need for dup of opencpn.ini
Sorry.
