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..

Abel T Appreciation 2020
In December 1642 after a particularly difficult and rough voyage, the Dutch seafarer and explorer, Abel Tasman, made landfall at a spot he named Staten Landt, believing he had arrived on the coast of Argentina. In fact, he had arrived in modern-day New Zealand. Once again out of love and respect for this brilliant seaman, Sailonline is retracing his route from Tasmania to New Zealand.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 1
According to Homer, after the Greeks sacked Troy, one of their heroes, Odysseus, had a particularly fateful journey home. Sailonline now invites you to relive his epic tale, journeying in a virtual ancient trireme, modelled on the Hellenic Navy's real live replica Olympia. The legend tells Odysseus was immediately blown off course, north to the land of the Cicones, perhaps making landfall near Cape Maroneais. When the winds abated and after pillaging the people, he made good progress south, undoubtedly rowing some of the way, to exit the Aegean at Cape Maleas, where this virtual first leg ends. Take your seats for 360nm of tragedy!

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!
