  1. A lot of clubs don't want to give their Ocad files to everybody, they only give jpg, tif, png or pdf files.
    It'ld be excellent to be able to create georeferenced events with those files (for example jpg+jgw, tif+tfw, ...)
    Could you create this feature that shouldn't be too difficult to implement?

  2. It would be great to be able to generate control descriptions as a Word document or Excel spreadsheet. This would allow setters to modify descriptions in unique circumstances. Is this possible or can it be made possible?

  4. Hi,
    I would like to be able to copy and paste 'all control descriptions' into excel or word. I am running a major event and next to each description i would like to record details such as spike/saw horse/ cable tie as well as notes on positioning. Can this possible or can it be made possible?

  5. With the development of smartphone applications, a KMZ export of races would allow the importation of races directly from these applications (Navitabi, Vikazimut, ...).

  6. It would be nice to have a feature to load some DEM source file (e.g GeoTIFF with elevation data) and for chosen course to plot elevation profile and show total climb info. For planning purposes in hilly areas that would be quite a timesaver.

  7. Allow rotation of map.

    Some maps are not drawn with meridians parallell to the edge of the map. I would like to be able to rotate the map to correct angle. As it is now it is not possible to make the control numbers and control descriptions parallel to meridians on these maps.

  8. Currently, the font type of control number on the map (Roboto?) is not in accordance with ISOM2017-2 standard (Arial). Could you please fix that, or make font type selection possible also for the order numbers?

  9. There is a bug in PayPal powered donation service when selecting donation without PayPal account i.e. with debit or credit card. The system suggest Grenada as the donator's region. When changing the setting to correct country, the system restarts for some reason.

  10. Would be useful for uploading the course print and special symbols as seen on map to Livelox. Read more here: https://www.livelox.com/Documentation/Courses
    (Livelox somewhat supports ppen-files, however, the result is messy)

  11. It is hard to add multiple lines of text on the map. You currently have to add one textbox for each line of text which is:
    1. Annoying to edit since you dont know how large or long the text will be
    2. Hard to make the different lines aligned correctly.

    My suggestion is to:
    1. Make it possible to edit a textbox directly on the map
    2. Allow multiple lines of text by allowing line breaks in the edit box

  13. In Norway there is an mobile app, InvisibleO https://usynligo.no/about, that is becomming popular during the pandemic. This app makes it possible to run an orienteering course without controls in the forrest, since it use GPS position from your mobile to tell when you are at the control.

    To make this work the map in Purple Pen must be georeferenced, and I'm aware that OCAD or OpenOrienteeringMapper files support this. But we don't want OCAD files distributed to everyone, because we want to avoid the risk of having several copies of the map where changes are done in each file.…

  14. The IOF export dialog currently defaults to IOF xml 2.0.3. This causes issues for novice users when the want to create iof xml files for apps such as UsynligO (which requires 3.0 format). Please consider to default to the newer version of the iof xml format (3.0) instead. Thanks!

  17. Hello everybody !

    IIRC this is my very first post in this group.

    I am an experienced OCAD-user but a novice in PurplePen.

    In a recent training session we used a map in scale of 1:4000. The training was held well after sunset and we run with headlamps. Sprint maps are hard to read in adverse lighting conditions, specially when the size of control circles turned out to be not compliant with ISSprOM 2019.
    It was 5,35mm instead 6,00.

    Did we miss something under initialisation ? Se link bellow to screeshoots

  18. I find Purple Pen much easier to use than Condes, but other club members are used to Condes. It would simplify communication if we could convert between the two formats.

  19. We like to create colored borders for different course maps. Currently you have to create a rectangle and fiddle with it to match the edges of the print area. It would be nice to have an option to do this automatically.
