You used excel to fill in the values.
You saved the file as a csv file.
(Your)Excel uses by default , as field separator. (can be different per country!)
You should use ; as field separator.

find attached your file now with ; separator.
Should work.


save your excel file as (MS-DOS) CSV

suggestion 2:
Open your polar.csv file in your favourite TEXT editor and search/replace , with ;
Then save.

God afternoon all.

Since one of the last qT revisions the "B" command disappeared.

Pity, because it was very useful.
Hope it can be implemented again.

It will, but that is gonna be Alt-B

In the mean time clicking on the microboard upper label does the same.

Good morning.

Thank you for info.
Yes, it works as the former "B" command.

Hi maitai.

Is there anyway to view/unview the new weather slider?
Thanks guys for any help


I defined pathway out of POIs

Start routing following pathway.

first question : in other Routing programs (SAilgrib eg) i can define whether to leave mark port or starboard. Not in QTVLM ?

second question :

The route is conversed out of the routing and the boat is traveling

when I now start a new routing DESPIT I activate start from boat AND use pathway the new routing and route always goes back through teh first POI

Do I really have to delete it once left to re route ?


qtvlm><grib><gribdrawingconfig>display grib time slider
(clicking the windbag is shorter to uncheck this option)

Thank you Lacsareno :-)
Hi maitai,

In version 5.8-2 I miss the little dot showing where the boat "should be" on a route when you hit the blue Now button.

I also miss the small sound qtVlm gave when it was finish calculating the steps in routing.

Is anyone else experiencing this? In the Gray Whale race qt is acting differently. After a routing is created, the simplify/optimize functions do not appear to be working but finish instantly and the final route seems different than the original routing. Also, all the poi's are added to the Marks list. I don't think I made any changes to the settings or configuration.
