Route & Mark Manager width

This is a small thing, but slightly irritating.

It's been said that settings in OpenCPN are "persistent" however in the Route & Mark Manager I can drag the window out to a readable size, and set the column widths to a convenient width but when I open Route & Mark Manager again, the widths have reverted back to being narrow again.

Is there a fix for this?

Not at the moment.

Yes, the setting needs to be saved in the ini file and reused, but this takes additional programming.

You can vote for this feature by signing/ registering into tracker and finding the request and voting for it!!!

Yes, please vote for it! It's part of Flyspray bug #2267 (which addresses persistent settings in all dialog boxes). More votes pushes it up the priority stack!

Re: Route & Mark Manager width

Voted and DONE! Yay.

Don't know that I can help on Flyspray, as I'm not a programmer.

Ryan, we can certainly use some help from users with editing and correcting the manual. This really is a volunteer task by done by users.
Programmers are best focused om programming!

I think this is something I could do. I'm already the proofreader for the hardcopy newsletter of the Northwest Steam Society four times a year (wife is the editor, and does the website as well). See it here: Northwest Steam Society

How do I get started with OpenCPN? Keep in mind I don't read or write HTML or C++ or fortran or any programming language.

Re: Route & Mark Manager width

Ryan, Private Message (PM) me. Click on my user name and send me an email you would like to use. I will email you an acknowledgement to make you a manager/editor.


You would need to become familiar with and use Dokuwiki syntax for editing, and you can use the Dokuwiki editor or the Ckgedit editor.
