Grib-pi "Draw Requested Area" gets stuck -Bug

OpenCPN v4.8.4 Windows 10
Grib-pi when Draw Requested area is checked, and saved, the second time grib-pi is used the red X shows with a message "Draw Requested Area or Click here to stop request".
When I click on the @ icon to stop the request, the red X disappears as it should.
When I hover on @ a message "Start a Request" now shows.
When I click on the @ again to open the request form, the red X reappears.
This should not happen.


Only fix is to edit the ini file.

Re: Grib-pi "Draw Requested Area" gets stuck -Bug

"ManualRequestZoneSizing=2"

I swear I never touched this in the opencpn.ini file.
Why "2"? Some other state?

Changed it to
ManualRequestZoneSizing=0
and it works now.

Re: Grib-pi "Draw Requested Area" gets stuck -Bug

Can anyone confirm that this problem occurs?

If it is confirmed I will put it in tracker.

It is re-recurrent unless I misunderstand the meaning of "Click here to stop request"
which I expect it to mean that on the next click (second click) I will be able to bring up the Request Form with the previous manual entry lat/long values showing.

There appears to be no way to get back into the "Request Form" after you have started it. Worst case you should have a way to undo it from the Preferences screen!


Once again I have to edit the Opencp.ini file

ManualRequestZoneSizing=2
to

ManualRequestZoneSizing=0

Actually should the second, simply directly intiate "Start a Request"?


I am quite confused about how this should work, but it is not working now and most certainly is a Bug.
