  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. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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-}

  19. 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…

  20. 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
