HI,


Perhaps this is intentional but when you turn an mbtiles chart off there is no longer a red X in the piano bar to indicate so.


Best regards,


Aedan

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.7.1 Beta Test #2

OpenCPN 5.7.1 does not start but crashes.
After all that time still not learned how to compile it for macOS ?
Very poor.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.7.1 Beta Test #2

Hi,


I have three mbtiles on the screen here but only two of them warrant piano bars, the smaller one at the upper right is missing. Is there a setting somewhere to increase the visibility threshold or something?


Thanks,


Aedan

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.7.1 Beta Test #2

macOS 13.0.1

- light sectors are ok now

- dashed lines have improved, but not perfect. Especially in the case of dashed arrows of the TSS

- the compass/GNSS icons are distortioned and jump between one side ok or the other (split canvas)

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.7.1 Beta Test #2

I am not sure, if this is helpful: TSS looks good on MacOS 12.6.2.

O-charts.

Perhaps because nobody knows how to convert a direction of 1.5 degrees in knots?

Not fixed or acknowledged in last beta test: see screenshot there:

AIS target list has a funky black background in brightest color scheme around the buttons, some text can't be read. Dimming causes a more correct grey background with readable text. This is on Debian SID/bookworm, amd64 and armhf

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.7.1 Beta Test #2

PGN129040 is still not used to plot a AIS target?
