Tracks visible on screen but not in track manager

Hi

For the last few weeks my tracks are not being recorded in the track manager although they show on the chart (even after stopping restarting opencpn).

I'm on 5.0.0 on Win 10 (up to date).

I've done about 100 nm since 21 March (last recorded track) and have the tracks visible on screen, but they are not showing in the track manager. I've been using opencpn on windows for over 10 yrs, and on various android platforms for 5 years so I'm doubtful that it's user error...especially as the tracks are all ok in the track manager on my Samsung tablet.

Got to assume it's a win 10 problem. Opencpn runs 24 hrs with occasional stops and I have tried reloading earlier navobj.xml's but without any joy.

My navobj's are about 55 mb and I wondered whether there was a database limitation but why is the track visible on screen then - it must be persisted somewhere (my tablet tracks are shorter only used for local coastal work so tablet navobj's are much smaller).

Has anyone got any ideas about this issue?

If you zip up your navobj.xml file how big is it? Maybe we can find a way for us to see it then maybe we can diagnose the problem.

Re: Tracks visible on screen but not in track manager

Hi Dan

Thanks for your response. Further info is that I loaded the Win10 navobj.xml onto my Samsung tablet and everything is ok - I can see all tracks on the screen and in the track manager.

So, this would seem to narrow the problem possibly to a presentation issue on win10.

By the way I am using the paid version of Opencpn on both win 10 and galaxy tab platforms (and on my phone).

The navobj.xml zipped is 6.3 Mb, a bit too big for upload here. Do you have dropbox or similar?

Thanks again

Try to create a free github account and go to the OpenCPN project. Create and issue and upload the file to that issue.

There is no paid Windows version. He is just saying the paid Android version is same as Windows version. Sheesh....

Correct, but I should have been more explicit. Sorry.


I'll have a look at github later today.
