Re: OpenCPN 5.6.2 Released

It depends on which OS you have. The .exe is for Windows and the .pkg is for the Mac.

Re: OpenCPN 5.6.2 Released

It is on the desktop. I create them there then move to a flash drive.

In my view there are two kinds of people .. givers and takers. You are one of the first and those of whom you speak are the second.

Restart after computer shutdown

If OpenCPN is not exited when the computer is shutdown (in Windows10) the following warning message appears when the program is restarted.

Any way to avoid this?

Re: OpenCPN General

Not if you have locked them which I think is good practice.

See the settings under Options/Ships/Routes/Points.

bcn also confirms but I don't know what to expect. As it is, all of my AIS targets are the same size.

Re: TRACKER/FLYSPRAY: When and How to use it

Time to open Flyspray for 5.6.0?

At least two bugs reported so far.

1. No font color in Mac OS.
2. Wrong links for alert sounds (Windows)
