  1. When adding an OCAD map file give a warning if the OCAD map has linked images - and where the OCAD file is looking for those images - in case I don't have those images and don't know they're missing...

  2. I would consider very useful to have simple distance measurement tool that allowed to measure the actual distance of the optimal route leg. I consider specially useful when drawing sprints. The workaround I do is to draw in Open Orienteering Mapper.

  3. 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.…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 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. 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.

  10. Any map detail between the end of the tail and the circle part of the number tends to make the 6 or 9 look like an 8. A straight tail would never be mistaken for an 8.

  11. Support exporting course information in the OCAD text format, in addition to the current IOF XML format.

  12. For short courses it would be more convenient to display the length in meters.

  13. When you push (or click) left mouse button it soud begin to track points where ever the mouse pointer goes, until you release (or click again) the left mouse button. Probably is more usefull if you add this behavior to every line drawing tool, and provide a activated/desactivated method as example by holding down/releasing a key (shift or control key).

  14. As secondary title for a course I used "4,5 km moeilijk"
    when I produced the XML-file this comes out as:

    <ClassShortName>4</ClassShortName>
    <ClassShortName>5 km moeilijk</ClassShortName>

    I do not know where this shortname is being used. But it looks like a bug

  15. Make a course. Click a control code in the definition. Double click. Write new number. Click enter. The number does not change.

    To change number you are not allowed to have single clicked the number before you double click. You must have another row yellow, then double click another line to make the cahnge of control code cahnge.

  17. A small suggestion to improve the Course Summary report: I have created a relay course with two forks and three member teams, giving nine variations. I need the variations to be approximately the same length with a spread of no more than two hundred metres between the shortest and longest. When I look at the Course Summary report it only shows me the length range for the entire course but doesn’t show me the length of each variation. If the range looks too large I have to go through each course one-by-one and note the course lengths from the control…

  18. There appears to be a bug, because in English versions of the control descriptions the wording should be 'Follow tapes m to the Finish'. Instead the words 'Navigate m to the Finish' appear.

  20. 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
