mea culpa ...
For some time I have been polluting this file by using [Settings/xxx_pi] to hold the settings, for some of the plugins I have made.
imo [Settings] should have the core OpenCPN
settings and the plugin
settings should be under [PlugIns] (Capital I).
As plugins are being updated I will be using [PlugIns/xxx_pi] for the settings for those plugins.
After doing a parallel installation
for the new version of OpenCPN
and upgrading the master catalog you may find two sections [Settings/xxx_pi] and [PlugIns/xxx_pi]. You may want to remove the [Settings/xxx_pi] section to ensure the settings you choose appear in the plugin
