  2. 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)

  3. Rotate map to align with leg while drawing course

    The perceived shortest route for a leg often depend on how you look at the map.
    I would like to be able to look at the map in the direction aligned with a certain leg of the course. To choose a challenging location for the control. Especially for sprints, I noticed that sometimes a different route choice seems obvious depending on whether you look with North on top or with me next control on top.

  4. copy punch patterns from another event

    Copy control punch patterns from matching control codes in another events. If your club uses the same codes with the same punch patterns from event to event, this would allow you to skip having to reenter punch patterns more than once.

  5. Allow defining a smaller size for control code when map contains both order number and control code

    Currently it is nice that you can place the control code next to the order number. It would be nice (to save some space) to be able to control the size of the control code separately. Normally I'd like it to be bit smaller than the order number.

  6. Print multiple course pa in one page

    For training, it's sometimes good to create several smaller courses to be printed in the same page.

    I hope my description isn't to hard to understand.
    But for example if doing orienteering intervals with a common start point for all intervals. Printing all intervals in one map can show up as quite messy. If dividing the map inte several smaller maps each one containing one interval makes it easier.
    If printing on one A4 page and having 6 intervals, then each interval could for example be a round map with diameter 8 cm. Control definition needs to be provided for…

  7. A way to choose font and size for the text descriptions (they are small know compared to the symbols)

    A way to choose font and size for the text descriptions (they are small know compared to the symbols). For instence "Arial narrow" is a larger tfont size would be more readable and still not require more width.

  8. Print all courses on one map

    A feature that should be very useful when planning big events is to print all courses on one map. We need to show land owner an authorities which belts that will be used so they, for example, kan see if the load on the nature is ok. All courses on one map wold give a good overview.

  9. support entering climb on each course leg

    I find myself re-calculating the climb for my courses, and having to double and triple check my work. It would be really nice to be able to calculate and set the climb for each leg separately. Purple Pen could even prompt the user to re-set the climb on affected legs if a control is moved after the climb has been set.

  10. 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

  11. Export function for course data to Etiming

    We are using the Emit system and Etiming software for result service. It is possible to import cource data from ocad. (version 8 text format in ocad)
    The file from ocad is in this format:
    ;Lang;0;5.500;0;S1;0.793;131;0.879;132;0.585;133;0.646;134;0.641;135;0.749;136;0.587;137;0.626;M1

    ;[Cource name];[Cource number];[lenght];[declenation];[Start name];[lenght to 1 control];[code 1 control];[code first conrol];[lenght to 2 control];[code 2 control] .......[name finich]

    With this function it will be possible set up the cources in the Etiming software by just importing this file, and also reduce the risk of writing errors.

  12. Allow ignoring of some courses from the event audit

    I often create courses for control putting out or collecting. An option to remove them from event audit or cross referencing. They'll need to be identified in the course tab titles in italics or with an asterisk etc.

  15. 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.

  17. allow some settings to be retained between sessions

    Users may find that they need to change one or more settings each time they use the program. Having a way to make these the new default settings would avoid this.

  18. Group tabs of circuit in folders

    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.

  19. produce report on water controls

    Have a report on water controls. This would indicate:

    * For each course, the longest segment between water
    * For each water point, how many competitors use it, and a suggested amount of water to place

  20. Rectangle with white padding

    The rectangle is nice for making borders on maps. Would be great if it had a white padding option, so we don't need to use the white masking tool. Padding should extend to infinity outside the border.
