  1. draw white area only on selected course

    At the moment if I draw white area it appears on each course.
    If it could appear only in the one selected that would be great!

  3. Translate text description of special instructions

    At present, special instructions such as "map exchange at control" are only available in some languages, but not in others.
    In contrast to control descriptions proper, they cannot be customized via the "customize text description" menu option.
    As a consequence, in my text description, "map exchange at control" appears in English, while everything else is German.
    Apparently, all it needs is a few extra lines in the symbols.xml (or via Ctrl Shift Help Menu), but one would have to meddle with Windows Admin rights to write into that file.

  4. Placed control description on the layout moves by itself

    When placing control descriptions, adjusting its position and size for every course (due to different space on map within courses) some descriptions already placed has moved on the layout - it seems like descriptions are somehow related - when repositioned in place again, the other moves off and vice versa. Again and again. Help!

  5. Add option to display "Score Only" on the map for creating rogaine maps

    All my controls have a code which I want in on the control/punch card, but I want to display the score for each control (31,32,33, etc.) ONLY on the map. It'd be great if "Score Only" were one of the options under Course Properties -> Control circle labels.

  6. More Hotkeys!

    I like hotkeys, they make things faster. Only hotkey that I managed to find was Ctrl-A for new Control.

    I would suggest at least two new hotkeys:
    - Select some element, Ctrl-C would copy it.
    - Add last added item, Ctrl-L or Ctrl-N, or something else.

    I think those would make things lot easier and faster and for the implementation point of view, doesn't sound big to implement.

  7. Tell us about the origin of Purple Pen, the people behind it and how donations are spent

    I have found Purple Pen to be a fantastic planning resource. I want to make the case for a donation to my local orienteering club and it would help to know something of how things work behind the scenes!

  8. Import XML file with controls and courses generated in Ocad

    Import existing XML file with controls and courses generated in Ocad. The XML file must be generated with georeferenced coordinates.

  9. Hi. The latest Ppen adds 22 to the points that I place in a score event. The preview is OK but the printout is wrong. Love the program

    Peter, I can't find the correct way to report an issue so hence above note. Brian Slater HALO UK

  10. Provide a graphical display of leg and control loading.

    Many years ago I used a planning program called Wincacs. One place it won out over purple pen was in its display of leg and control load. By drawing all used legs and controls in an event, with different size circles and thickness of lines depending on the loading it gave a much quicker idea of which legs and controls are overloaded. Currently this is a lot more clunky in purple pen. Its not critical, but it would be a nice addition.

  11. Control Description Printing

    As a professional map printer, we usually supply the control descriptions glued at the head, and print 4 or 5 courses at one time, but is it possible to stop Purple Pen filling a sheet with cd's and just have them arranged at the head?

  12. Pourquoi, alors qu'il y a la possibilité de saisir ses schémas de poinçon, il n'y a pas la possibilité d'imprimer un carton de correction ?

    Pourquoi, alors qu'il y a la possibilité de saisir ses schémas de poinçon, il n'y a pas la possibilité d'imprimer un carton de correction ?
    Il serait vraiment intéressant d'imprimer les cartons de correction

  14. Multi-couleurs pour les postes

    Est-il envisageable d'avoir la possibilité de modifier la couleur de certains postes (= course au réseau de postes en scolaire) Ex : avoir certains postes en violine et d'autres postes en bleu. Cela peut aussi permettre aux créateurs de circuits de différencier leurs circuits par des couleurs de postes différentes.

  16. Remove Bend improvement

    1. Assign a keyboard shortcut to Item>Remove Bends to speed up the process of removing bends from a course.

    2. Create a "Remove all bends" feature to remove all bends from a course or set of courses.

    3. Allow courses with straight lines joining controls and also the same courses with lines bent round objects to exist in the same PP file.

  17. support phi-loops

    The new support for butterflies and relay forking is great, but it would be awesome to have the option of creating course variations with phi-loops as well. These seem to be more commonly used by planners than traditional butterfly loops these days.

    (Basic diagram of a phi-loop here, although note you can also include controls on the diagonal between 1,6 and 3,7: http://news.worldofo.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/philoop-300x226.jpg)

  18. create control descriptions in Danish

    I am working with school orientering where it is often suitable to work with text descriptions in stead of IOF symbols. PP creates automatically the descriptions in English which is not applicable for Danish schoolboys and -girls. How do I do descriptions in Danish?

  19. selecting control number with keypad

    When creating a
    circuit, it would be nice to be able to type the control numbers with
    the numeric keypad instead of selecting the control circle on the map.
    I hope the next version could do that.

  20. Trail O

    The simplest addtions are direction indicators in column 8 of the CDs - Arrows for each compas direction - and control codes that allow for A-E, A-C, A etc, which already works, but only once per code. The next is to add small dots for the solutions sheet where the kites are placed including the zero (non existant kite).
