If you make many routes in Open CPN, it happens that some waypoints will be included in several. For example, outside the home port, many routes meet at a common approach point.
If you are careful when pointing with the arrow when building new routes, you can capture a previous waypoint so that it is also included in the new route, but if you fail to point exactly right, a new waypoint is created in almost the same place.
The same problem occurs if you want to insert an existing waypoint into an existing route. I have found no method to achieve this.
It would be useful to be able to merge several waypoints that are co-located in the 'same' place, because then nearby route lines will also run together, and if you want to adjust a waypoint that is part of several routes, all of them will adjust.
Does anyone know if there is a technique for this?
Note however that there is a feature freeze for the current beta development. So this proposed change will, most likely, not make it to the next version of OpenCPN 5.2.
Perhaps to version 5.4.
Why not vote for #FS2648 in the tracker?
