  1. 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.

    • 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

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                  • Make it possible to add a marked route as part of the course.

                    Most commonly used from last control to finish, but also commonly used mid-course in relation to spectator passages, map exchange or crossing forbidden areas. Should also be allowed from start point to start triangle.

                    • Allow the "Set print area" to work on a number of courses at the same time.

                      At the moment the choice is all to make them all the same or to set the area individually. I have resorted to manually editing the .ppen file to make a number of them the same.

                      • Manage classes

                        In OCAD, you can create a list of classes and then link a path to each class. It's good at big events.

                        For XML export, the file will also include the ClassCourseAssignment-tag: <ClassCourseAssignment>
                        <ClassName> D60 </ ClassName>
                        <CourseName> Course 3 </ CourseName>
                        </ ClassCourseAssignment>

                        This is a very useful feature that would be good to include in the Purple Pen.

                        See attached links for pictures (sorry for Swedish in the pictures.)

                        • 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.

                          • Means to include the file name on the map

                            Under Insert Special Text, allow means to include the current filename.
                            I update the filename with a version letter after changes. It would help to be confident from the output which version was being used.

                            • make follow "Follow tapes to finish" the default

                              Competitors should virtually never be expected to navigate to the finish and it should be strongly discouraged. There is no option for the finish to have a description. I think that at the moment, many planners just leave the default (navigate to finish) without thinking about it.

                              • watch for changes to background maps of maps

                                When the background map changes in PurplePen, a prompt appears asking if the map should be reloaded.

                                Often the map is made up of two OCAD files, one containing the map and the other containing the format (border, northlines, title, etc.).

                                The formatting OCAD file uses the raw-map OCAD file as a background map.

                                If the raw-map OCAD files is changed, PurplePen doesn't prompt for the map to be reloaded.

                                The background maps of OCAD maps should be watched for changes

                                • Arrange text descriptions in same order as symbols.

                                  This would be useful for beginners as the text would read exactly the same as the symbols. e.g. use "N knoll, E edge" rather than "E edge of N knoll"

                                    • Allow repeated use of Forbidden Route tool without the need to re-select it.

                                      At the moment marking a long forbidden route is very tedious as you have to re-select the tool from the menu to place each X.

                                      • 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.

                                        • bug - when used without background map, course view keeps shifting off-screen

                                          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
