Hi there, I'm new to this group needing some help please.
I have been using V4.8.6 with Australian Vector charts
for about 18 months on a Windows 10 Dell Inspiron 7570. Happily navigating and tracking about 4,500nm so far.
I recently tried to upgrade to V5.0 but found the chart objects sizes had changed and and I was not able to adjust them in the User Interface Settings. In particular, the depth/soundings numbers are very big (about font pt 18) and navigation
markers are so tiny almost impossible to see. Adjusting the Chart Object Scale Factor only changes those chart objects that I have created - i.e. waypoints, markers, tracks and routes. Not those that are embedded in the charts
, they stay the same size.
The Scaled Graphic Interface box is checked. The same settings work
fine on 4.8.6 and had no problem adjusting them.
I've searched around in the settings, the online manuals
and this forum to no avail. Also asked the Facebook OpenCPN
User Group but no-one there able to help.
I have reinstalled V4.8.6 as our working system for now, while I try and sort this out.
So, two questions for now.
1. Have I missed something in settings?
And before I start with V5 again....
2. Can I install V5 and run in parallel with V4.8.6 accessing the same charts and current
user data (tracks, routes, waypoints)?
