Hi, back from few days off.
Can you reproduce the problem after a fresh qtVlm restart? If yes can you describe precisely what you did before it occurred?
Hi Matai, for me, the problem used to occur perhaps 6 to 18 hours after a restart, with NMEA instruments running continuously. Eventually, when returning to QT and getting ready to load a new grib, or to do a new routing, I would notice the frozen tabs for grib, routes and routings. I tried decreasing the detail of the displayed grib and it seemed to hold off the problem a bit longer. However, for the last week, I have been shutting down once a day (actually every 14 hours) and so I have not had the issue. Going back 2-3 months or so (I can't remember when this problem first appeared) to when I didn't have any issues, I could leave QT running for days without any issues at all. cheers John
I don't think it has something to do with grib display options, and I don't think it is related to the time qtVlm was running.
I think it's something you are doing (or a sequence of actions), that triggers the bug.
For instance does it always occurred just when you go background->foreground? Or it can occurs even if qtVlm is foreground, that was working and hop, no more menus ?
Hi again. To answer you perhaps I can try to describe it this way. Firstly, I am doing exactly the same as I have done for years: open QT, load correct polar, load grib, start NMEA, loads marks, create a routing, convert to route, and export the csv file. Then I let QT sit open behind my browser screen. When the new grib arrives, I go back to QT to load it, and now often find that when I return to QT, and mouse over the grib tab, it is unresponsive (ie, won't drop down a menu) though it lights up a kind of purple.

So actually I am not doing anything immediately before this freeze occurs. It does either occur at some time while the QT window is open in the background, or it occurs immediately I bring it to the foreground and place the mouse over the grib button.

Hope that helps explain it a bit better, and thanks so much for investigating.
Viva all.

From what I remember, the problems here occurred after several, heavy and lengthy calculation on routings/routes.

The only solution then was to “exit” qT and restart it.

A Big Hug to all.

Ok, thanks for your explanations. Problem is that I cannot reproduce it, and if I cannot reproduce it I cannot fix it.

Next time it occurs, can you try to resize a bit qtVlm windows to see if the menus come back?
Can you try this version and see if it fixes the issue?

Thanks, I will try.
Any news?
So far so good but I have been moving locations and needing to reboot QT quite a few times. I'm now back at home and will keep testing the beta..
