Re: NO LOCATION NAMES SHOWING ON CHARTS

I have OpenCPN 5.0 and CM93 charts on two of my computers and it works fine. I have my mates computer in front of me with 5.0 and CM93 charts and no names! I have uninstalled and reloaded 5.0 and tried all the above except changing the font, I can't find that anywhere! I'm sure he had the names when he had the older version of OpenCPN.
I even took screenshots of my system on my yacht to ensure we had the same settings. Some advice greatly appreciated.

Please publish your configuration file called "opencpn.ini" (opencpn.conf on Linux).

The location of this file is stated in the "About Dialog", that you reach by pressing the "?" in the main toolbar. (upper left on screen).

Thanks for the reply. Just found the Show text was not clicked in Chart Panel Options. This is the menu bottom right of the screen in 5.0 for those other people with the same problem.
Thanks Thomas.

Re: NO LOCATION NAMES SHOWING ON CHARTS

The short cut key "t" (for "text") will toggle this setting.
More in the relevant section of the help/manual.

Thanks for that. I tried it out today while sailing. I don't usually have a keyboard connected but I will pass that on to my mate.

Re: NO LOCATION NAMES SHOWING ON CHARTS

Wiki FAQ is a good place to start
Hit Ctrl+F to find on that page
Enter "no text" and click down until you see the solution.
Hint [You just have to enter "no text" and it pops up.

I think that is what you need.

I just installed version 5.0 and that's exactly the cure. Thanks
