    At the moment it takes ages to mark a long forbidden route as the tool has to be re-selected from the menu for each X.

    • 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.

      • 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?

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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…

                    • Am I able to open a course which would show that course in the usual purple, and then show all the other courses with black lines?

                      By showing any nominated course with purple lines, and then showing all other courses with black with arrows showing direction of travel. This will then show pictoraily all common controls. This would then make it easy to decide on water points, whether or not too many people were visiting a control, or whether runners were entering the control from the same direction and therefore assist in following.

                      • 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

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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)

                              • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • History facility

                                        Ocad has very useful File>Information facilty to make notes on successive changes to planning, base map etc. Hopefully easy to implement.

                                        • 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.
