I'm having two issues with the display of vector charts
and one general chart display/quilting issue.
The first involves how soundings are displayed. When I zoom out, there's a period before soundings disappear when they dominate the screen
, overlapping other soundings to the point where the screen
is too cluttered and difficult to read. I'm using all the default display settings that the program came with.
The second issue is that whenever I zoom, the whole computer freezes up as it converts SENC, or something like that. Is there a way to run all of those conversions in advance when I don't need my chartplotter
? I could run it overnight or something, instead of having my computer freeze up for 30-60 seconds at a time when I most need it.
Finally, there are multiple vector charts
covering the same area. Chart quilting seems to work great for raster charts, but is there any way for Open CPN
to automatically and smartly recognize what zoom level I'm at, and choose to display the most appropriate vector chart? That would drastically cut down on the number of green bars at the bottom of my screen, and make it easier to not lose vital details because the small scale charts covering large areas don't have all the information on the large scale charts covering small areas.
I'm running Open CPN
4.0.0 on Windows 8.1.
