RNC charts overlaid on ENC charts

With quilting turned OFF, when I select a RNC kap chart overlay, the background ENC (CM93) chart blanks out and shows a basic RNC outline, but I can select individual RNC charts within a group.



With quilting turned ON, when I select a RNC kap chart overlay, the background ENC (CM93) chart is still shown, but I can only select the first RNC charts within a group.



Is there a config setting to rectify this?
If not, is there a parameter in the RNC kap chart header that will make each RNC chart unique so all the charts can be selected and displayed with quilting turned ON?

Re: RNC charts overlaid on ENC charts

From a previous recent post (use search) Thomas (cagney) suggested and showed how a very small change in scale would order the kAps by time. Maybe something from that thread will help. Go find it.

I did try that, and it didn't.
PS I can order the kaps by putting each one in its own directory [01xxx] [02xxx] etc but that doesn't resolve the issue of non select-ability with quilting on.

Are you sure that the kaps really do have different scales?
Notepad++. The header of the files.
This should work.

Yes, used Notepad++ and bsbfix but still only the first chart in the group was displayable with quilting on.
Solved the ordering issue by putting -6xxx in [01xxx], HWxxx in [07xxx] and +6 in [13xxx] folders which works well, as I can put all the -6's for different areas in one folder and all the +6's in another.
But that isn't anything to do with the current issue I'm trying to get my head around - making each RNC chart unique so all the charts can be selected and displayed with quilting turned ON like wot they are with quilting off.
Maybe it's a 'feature' in OCPN that it can't be done and I'm wasting my time trying, if someone could put me right, it would be great.

Please download and test http://opencpn.org/ocpn/downloads/da...tCharts/NAW.7z.
I will help if you can do this, as these Pilot Charts is a known quantity.

You are posting the same in two places. Cagney confirms changing the scale slightly with notepad++ solves the problem. Can you page through using ctrl+ left/right arrow keys?
Have you downloaded 2-3 Pilot Charts and tested those and then inspected with notepad++.?

Finally, what is the feature improvement you'd like?
Post it in tracker and don't forget to vote for it. There are almost 20 vetted features ahead of this.
