Yellow line / green circle ?

Anyone know why this happens on my windows laptop? Everything seems to work fine but there's always this yellow line pointing off the screen. Opencpn 4.6.1 on a win 10 laptop. Ta

Do you have the OpenCPN Draw plugin on the Windows laptop?

The yellow line and green arc might have been created with the OCPN Draw plugin. Perhaps an EBL and a Guard Zone which were created in a previous OpenCPN session. These can be persistent and OCPN Draw will put them on the screen every time you run O on that computer.

If OCPN Draw created the line and arc, it can remove them.

Found it, it was a landfall alarm in the watchdog plugin. Thanks, thought I'd been through all the plug ins but must have missed that one.
