  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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"

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add option to display "Score Only" on the map for creating rogaine maps

    All my controls have a code which I want in on the control/punch card, but I want to display the score for each control (31,32,33, etc.) ONLY on the map. It'd be great if "Score Only" were one of the options under Course Properties -> Control circle labels.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. selecting control number with keypad

    When creating a
    circuit, it would be nice to be able to type the control numbers with
    the numeric keypad instead of selecting the control circle on the map.
    I hope the next version could do that.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
