Re: (RC2) Tide Harmonics

RC2 has reverted to earlier tide harmonics which exclude the Philippines.

These harmonics include the Philippines.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Beta Release 4.99.1520 (RC2)

Hello,

1. The dashboard preferences items remain in english

2. There is no (more?) option to change the style of the icon menu, see attached photos (Figure 1 = OCN 488, Figure 2 = OCN 499)

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Beta Release 4.99.1520 (RC2)

The worst OpenCPN version ever.
Years old bugs not fixed or back again? See 2 examples attached:
NMEA Debug window not usable and also z-order problems.
Strange numbers in item settings of Grib Plugin.
If you have problems using wxWidgets why not ask for help the wx developers? Or better switch to Qt.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Beta Release 4.99.1520 (RC2)

When I open toolbar/options for the first time, everything looks nice. When opening toolbar/options the second time after having closed the Option at any menu time except Display, I see the Canvas Options in Connections, User Interface and Plugins. If I go back to Display before closing Options, everything looks normal again.

Chart Panel Options still visible when changing the App either through ctrl-tab or dock.

See screenshots.

re:

AFAICT, OCPN has never included the harmonics file you reference. This must be private to your system. Anyway, the OCPN bundled harmonics files have not changed in years.


Thanks

Is there any chance they can now be upgraded? Is there some problem with doing this?

Sorry, not for OCPN5.
We would need to research the data source and confirm that it is licensed for global distribution with OpenCPN. Takes some time....

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Beta Release 4.99.1520 (RC2)

When I untick options/user interface/show status bar and at some point want it to show again, it shows up in default colours but becomes unreadable and ignores "use dark Window decorations" until next restart. In other words, a change of show status bar requires a restart to show correctly.

Dave,

I am really sorry...
After seeing this problem this morning, I stopped my PC.
By restarting it now, I just noticed that the setting preferences of the Dashboard are now in native language, in my case in French.
So, for that, everything seems to work...

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Beta Release 4.99.1520 (RC2)

Is it possible to add an 'update software' option in a later release?

Dave..
The help_en_US.htm will not load in Win10. One slash to much in the path.
With my "ugly looking" patch below it works, GetSharedDataDir actually ends with enough slash. I think it's the same for all OS but please check.

Here I have used both together.


There is some difference between the two versions.

I can confirm the problem on W10 while Linux is OK.
