How to Get Out of the Route Mode

I seem to be missing something here. When I click on the "create route" icon and create some waypoints- how can I exit this mode? I want my arrow back...
Some posts say something about a menu that could be reached by right clicking a waypoint or something- well that doeasn't happen here (using windows version under wine since I couldn't compile under 64 bit Ubuntu 8.10).

Awesome proggy by the way- a lot of potential, esp. with raster chart support.
Any chance to get openstreetmap/openseamap/freie tonne support in there?

Cheers, Christian

Right click the mouse on the last waypoint and the bottom line of the menu is 'End route' after which the mouse is all yours!! Right clicking on any part of the route line will give you all the details of the route.

I see. Somehow the program doesn't do that right click menu here. Bummer...
It might be a bug in wine.
Damn I think I got to throw the 64 bit Ubuntu over board and go with 32 bit- the repository there is way bigger anyways...

Thanks for the hint, Christian

I' m currently developing a Linux distribution for on- board- computers. Just install a cd on your laptop and you get moving map, radio stuff like pskmail, navtex, weatherfax,navigation programms, calculators and whatnot...

Opencpn will come in very handy since it is free software. The other option would be Seaclear, but nobody can tell if it you can distribute it freely- also it has no gpsd support, so setting up the GPS for as many user configurations as possible is not easy.

If anyone know of software he or she would like to see in such a dirtribution please come forward...
