Hi Dave

I have been looking for the folders in Open CPN where you hide the text I write after adding a mark on the charts. Have writen a couple of cruising guides using Oziexplorer but can't give away the program as I don't own it. Thought I could use Open CPN w cruising guide as and extra folder or 2 ( text and Pictures)
Thanks for your help
Hans

Can't get AIS target query

Very happy with OpenCPN; only thing is, since version 3.0.0 I can not get an AIS target query by right-clicking on the target, or in any other way I tried. I only get the target query window if we are on a danger course with that specific vessel

Re: OpenCPN Version 3.0.0 Release

Sorry, should have said that I already upgraded to 3.2.2 and this did not help.
Also double clicking did not work. Windows 7 64.

Re: OpenCPN Version 3.0.0 Release

Hi Dave,
we have returned to our boat.
I tried what you suggested. I did not get the target query window. This window only appears if on a collision course. Some releases ago you could get it by right-clicking on an AIS target, and selecting "AIS target query".
Software version is 3.3.1006.
Thanks,
Jef
