  1. Change the appearance of the numbers 6 and 9. The tail should end farther from the circle part of the number.

    Any map detail between the end of the tail and the circle part of the number tends to make the 6 or 9 look like an 8. A straight tail would never be mistaken for an 8.

    • Select object behind white-out area by double-clicking mouse

      Its very hard currently to do a layout, since when I put white-out area, and there are objects on it (like logos), i cannot anymore select those logos. So I need to take a white-out area, move it aside, then take logo and change or move it, and then again bring white-out area back to where it was. Not good.

      Should be like this: one-click on the white-out are will select area. But DOUBLE-CLICK (or tripple) should allow selecting and working with objects which are on the white-out area.

      • Double click on text with mouse allows to change the text

        When double clicking on the text, it should be possible to immediately edit the text.

        • Select multiple objects with SHIFT or CTRL

          When putting design on the map, I usually work with number of elements - map border, some text, some pics, logos. And very often I need to move group of them to some location. But currently this is not possible to select a group, therefore I only can select one object, and move one-by-one to new location. Very ineficient and very slow..

          Requirement:
          Implement multiple object selection using mouse by pressing CTRL or SHIFT or by left click mouse and drag to select area with all objects in it.

          • Allow multi-sections courses

            It would be great if possible to create several sections in one course : for example, runners have to check controls as they want in a first section and in order for an other section.

            • Switch current course view by keyboard

              Would be great to be able to swtich back and forth down the list of course tabs by keypress. Like CTRL-TAB and CTRL-SHIFT-TAB in Chrome. Although I would prefer CTRL-SHIFT-{ and CTRL-SHIFT-}

              • Allow uncropped maps for Routegadget export

                Maybe just a checkbox to allow the user to select cropped or uncropped maps (ideally defaulting to unchecked).

                I am always disappointed when I see cropped maps in Routegadget. I understand that this is trying to reduce file sizes, but the tests I have done show that it doesn't really make a great deal of difference for most events.

                The RG2 wiki at https://github.com/Maprunner/rg2/wiki/Map-Files provides a lot more detail of the background to this.

                • To make it easier to plan courses on the same map, but with different scales and graphics

                  I would like to suggest one enhancement, if I may. It is related to graphics for courses.
                  Currently, objects like printing area and descriptions are associated with each course.
                  Other objects, such as white-out areas, images, lines, and texts are associated with an event. This creates a problem when the same map is used for events that have different map scales and paper sizes. In these cases, the graphic’s layout is different for each map scale.
                  I have an event to prepare that uses one map for two races. I would like to use one master map with all controls…

                  • Add option to add PNG/SVG overlay to map

                    For our events, we have common styling for maps. For now, we solve this by creating a pdf of the map.
                    But if we decide to use a different region at a later stage, we have to create new map file.
                    It would be great if we could add some Png/svg overlay, that can be reused between events to keep the maps in the same style and make the process of map creation simpler

                    • Allow relay team numbers to start at a number greater than 1

                      For a relay event with more than one class, say 'men' and 'women', allow the team numbers for men to start at 1 (say) and the women at 101. At present the work-around appears to be to define 200 women's teams and to print the maps for only teams 101 upwards, but this means that the XML and PDF exports of team variations contain a lot of unnecessary data.

                      • Include georeferencing (where available) in exports for Routegadget

                        Having a single menu item to export the course data (XML) and map image (GIF) for Routegadget is very useful, thank you. But it seems that the exported map image is not georeferenced, even if the OCAD map is. Is it possible to create and export the GFW file too?

                        • 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)

                          • 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?

                            • 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.

                                  I can't use an existing Finish on a course file where I wasn't given the map. Everytime I click on anything on the course image the view first shifts everything off the screen

                                    It would be very useful if we can group circuits in tabs it the tool bar.
                                    For example : One map, mutliple courses and multiple circuit.

                                      • White-out area to be located behind other objects

                                        It would be very nice if the White-Out-Area could be placed behind other objects such as text and images. Currently any such object are hidden behind the White-Out-Area. Actually, there should preferably be two different ways of masking information, one type of mask placed behind and another mask placed in front of other objects as the current one.

                                        • It seems that the PDFs output via File>Output PDFs is not georeferenced. It would be great for tracking to have GeoRef PDFs.

                                          It seems that the PDFs output via File>Output PDFs are not georeferenced. It would be great for tracking to have GeoRef PDFs. Some mobile device apps can read them without having to calibrate manually.
