Tide and Current tables Not Working

using Ocpn Ver. 4.2.0 on a windows 10 Dell Laptop
when displaying TIDES or CURRENTS i do get the "Direction Arrows" or the "Tide Height indicators". When i click on the Arrow or Tide Height bar to attempt to access the actual tables (left click the Arrow or bar)...Nothing happens...No table...Well maybe "sometimes."
Am i doing something wrong.

Also, an aside note...just irritating ....when i close out of Ocpn, it won't...I get "not responding" and have to force close it every time..

Thanks
Any help would be appreciated

Re: Tide and Current tables Not Working

Maine bill,
The User Manual can actually be helpful .
Tides and Currents | Official OpenCPN Homepage

After testing myself to remember the process , I had to Review and confirm the Documentation. It is very helpful to see the screenshots too :.
  • Available tide stations will show on the chart as green graphs with a "T" logo:
  • The "T" becomes a yellow and blue vertical bar when the scale is greater than 1:500.000 (IE: Zoom IN!)
  • Right click the middle of either icon to see the tidal graph
You may have to zoom out then back in to get another station to pop up, or (more likely) just right click again. Good luck.

Thanks

In what script does that stand for 'T' ?

I don't understand your question, but then I must speak a different language.
Perhaps "T" means Tide Logo. I did not write it..

Maine Bill you must Zoom into the chart until the Logo turns into a vertical bar
then right click.

Actually, Bdbcat is right, right-click on the logo works too.
