A couple of thoughts...

- Minus zoom out, plus zooms in. The equal sign should also zoom in. The user shouldn't have to use two hands to press the key.

- The tools dialog has a funny scroll bar with it. It shouldn't scroll the tabs - they should be fixed at the top.

- The very large "X" to quit the application doesn't seem needed. Can't you just close the window to quit? It seems like it would be more appropriate to have a man overboard function there instead of a quit. It seems like something that big is begging the user to quit.

- Quilting worked very well. I've only tested it with raster charts but I put it through some difficult areas at it and it worked well.

- Is there a way to manually rotate the chart?

- Current arrows seem oversized. Check out the Miami area during larger current times - those arrows are way too big.

- It seems to crash after about 5 minutes of hard use (every time). No indication or error message - it just disappears. In general, it was during chart panning.

- Is there a Mac version being generated?


It's really an excellent update. I'd love to put some real sea time behind it to give some more input. A Mac version would help that for me.

Greatnew version!

However Tmercs and quilting are not best friends.
My first try:
1. Black frame around the chart.
2. The scale doesn't work. Observe the measure line next to the scale. Seems to be a factor 2 off.

It works remarkably well, but in areas with many charts of different scale covering an area there are some strange effects similar to the black frame here.

I LOVE the quilting.

But, since I have raster marine charts, plus raster topo charts, and raster photo charts, I need a way to tell it to only use charts of the right type.

In the current configuration, I can make sure to separate the types into different folders and only load one type. But the best would be a way to classify the charts and choose which types to include in the quilting process.

And it crashes with me, as well. Win 7, 64bit.

But, it's a great start! That little innocuous number 10 was probably a heck of a lot of work. Thanks!

Quilt chart types

Dacust....

Check out the
Code:
Toolbox->Settings->Select Chart Types for Quilting....
This will allow the quilt to use only raster or ENC or CM93, as selected.

Not sure how we could distinguish between topos and photo charts, though. They look like BSB raster charts to ocpn.

Any ideas?

Any more info on the crashes? Funny logfile entries or anything like that?

Dave

I'm running into an endless loop processing S57 charts. It gets stuck on a particular chart until I kill it:

Code:
18:51:39: Version 2.1.0 Build 328
[...]
7:11:02 PM: Initializing Chart D:\charts\S57\us3ca14m\us3ca14m.000

7:11:03 PM:    OpenChartFromStack...Error opening chart D:\charts\S57\us3ca14m\us3ca14m.000... return code
Additional minor issue: a consistent time format for the log would be good!

EDIT: Moving that directory out of my S57 directory to hide it from OpenCPN gets past the problem, though OpenCPN then complete crashes on other S57 charts. So I moved S57 charts out completely, and it still crashes loading BSB charts. Log is not interesting...

Bugs...

Scotte....

Quilting on/off? Windows/linux? Problem charts working on 1.3.6?
Anything working at all?

Thanks
Dave

This is on windows... Same exact chart directory as 1.3.6. Appears to be quilting related - of course I enabled all new features right off the bat . Rebuilding chart catalog now without quilting to see what happens. Will update momentarily.

EDIT: Disabling ALL quilting options seems to fix it (not just unchecking for the three chart types, but turning off the quilting option above as well).

OOOoooo. Cool. I should looked around.

And, nope. No good ideas on how to tell the types apart. That is, other than using a directory naming convention for scanned charts.

I'll play with it some and get some logs. Maybe tomorrow.

cm93 quilt bug

Hi there...

A bug I found:

If you use cm93 charts only, quilting won't look any different than single chart mode, since cm93 is considered to be one huge composite chart.
True quilting for cm93 is yet to be implemented......

Anyway, if you try quilting on cm93 only, you must enable cm93 on

Toolbox->Settings->Select Chart Types For Quilting

to avoid a crash.

Fix coming soon.

Dave

Using gcc ubuntu9.04 ( CVS with last commits by BDcat 29/10) my compile failed at nmea.cpp lines 802,812 (wx asserts messages)
I temporarily commented out these lines since I think these are for error reporting and then it compiled OK.
However after running and closing initial dialogue I got an error- assert "OK()" failed in setbackground; from dcclient.cpp[2113] and crashed.

I may be running an incomplete environment so apologies if I am -Im quite new to all this CVS stuff.

Anyway congrats on advancing this great piece of work.

Perhaps this should go in the feature req. but there was a recent request which seems to have gone unoticed for locating menus on side to better suit 10" netbooks. I'd 2nd this even if well down the priority list.

Compiles and run great on Ubuntu, the version before crashed on startup on MacOSX 10.6, Snow Leopard. Somethign with adding menus. I guess MacSO need a special kind of wx startup thats is missing...

I have some wxT fixes for that in my git,
https://github.com/balp/OpenCPN

The balp_build_2_1 have the lates from Dave and a wx fix that should fix that I have not tested fully yet.

Perhaps that could be done by means of the previous live switching mechanism at the bottom, where several of those bars could be active simultaneously - this would allow for live switching in of different types into the quilted mix?

The chart data/issue date display at the top is also rather useful, perhaps it would be technologically feasible for this to display the chart under cursor.

Thanks for your attention

I like both of those ideas.
