    Settings are saved by the client. But there are caveats.

    If your browser (in the name of privacy) clears the local storage there's little the client can do to preserve them.

    In addition, if you use race1.sailonline.org, race2.sailonline.org, etc. style URLs for multiracing, the settings will be saved per URL rather than shared.

    Hi there. Trying to do the whole routing thing only on an ipad. I'm almost there but it's so long since I've done this I've forgotten one thing. Can someone fill me in please...is Andrew's (kipper's) programme the only place to source the race marks file (gpx file)? Thanks.
    
    
    The gpx download feature has been added to the new client, it's currently available only in ?version=dev (in the list under the misc tab).

    Rod,

    Can you please try ?version=dev. ...Go into Setting, enabled "Show diagnostics" and "Extra diagnostics".

    Then open up diag tab and double click to center map. The diagnostics printouts should now have a few lines with "uimode:" in them (you might have to scroll to the end unless you've just started the client). I'd be interested know the uimode event sequence you see there.

    You can repeat the same for the course choice (assuming it you refer to steer tool rather than the set boat course button which would is unrelated to uimodes).

    I don't understand what "shadow effect" is?

    Hi Altair,

    "Planning predictors" have been suggested also elsewhere and "aiming from DC dot" has been one potential item on my todo list. They are doable, but the former only on medium term as it will require some predictor code refactoring first (I need to do that anyway at some point but it's also somewhat scary given the importance of not breaking the predictor :-)).

    Planning predictors, however, is one of those features that would clearly give the client abilities beyond what has been traditionally available and I'd like to see some kind of discussion whether such features are something that should be included into the client or not.

    As regards your earlier request about saving the chat messages locally to preserve longer chat history, I'm unlikely to implement that as I view it as an attack vector.

    ...And I don't have any idea why triple clicking does what you say. At least for me with FF it just moves the map as expected.

    This double clicking (and also max zoom thing) came up early into testing. Let me explain some of the history.

    The client used to zoom "some" (certainly not to max zoom) when double-clicking a point. It's the default for the map library the client uses and what many other map services in the Internet use. I was pointed out, however, that the flash client uses double-clicking to center the map at that point. So the behavior was changed to match the flash client. Another thing is that ruler tool uses double-click to terminate, disabling the double-click helped also to solve fully the double
    effect problem there (I had to workaround the library default otherwise).

    You can go into the max zoom (for the current center of the map) by alt-clicking the zoom in button. But for that to be useful, you need to double-click the intented center first as otherwise you end up into middle of nowhere (the limiting precision of 1 pixel on far away zooms may still cause the same headache even if double-clicking first).

    The alt-click on zoom out currently zooms out a bit too much, IMHO, but I don't know if the "whole race area" the flash client uses is really what is sought either. Maybe it could be changed to fit the current center and own boats + additional 1 level of zoom out (=0.5x) or something along those lines?

    There's one important difference between the breezy and flash client in zooming though. The flash client zooms always at the map center but
    mousewheel on breezy zooms at the point underneath the cursor (which is what most people using map-based Internet services should be used to so I'm not very willing to duplicate flash client on this point; a setting is always possible if there's significant demand for it). The top left zoom buttons zooms the map from the center.

    And yes, I try to listen what people use and implement them if you let me know what you're missing. It's done with some smallish priority usually given to features that were in the flash client over entirely new features somebody just wants. I have many my own "wants" still on the TODO list too because more important things needed to get done first. So please just let me know if there's a feature in the flash client which you feel is lack (or may even make you unwilling to migrate from the flash to breezy).

    And before more people ask, TWS contours are under works and 97% complete already so no need to mention that :-).

    For the most part I like the new client, but I have a couple of things that bug me.
    Mainly the weather slider seems a bit too complex where the weather is loaded in 2 hours to 6 hour increments.
    Also I can't seem to get the scroll keys to control the slider in in anything but full auto-play. In the flash client I can easily click on the the slider and and run through the full weather download in 10 minute increments just by using the scroll keys. It would be nice to be able to do the same in the new client.
    .

    Thanks for testing.

    The arrow keys (left & right) to control WX slider step-by-step has already been added into the dev version. The WX step size can be configured using the pull down selector (2min-3h range available).

    The dev version is accessible by appending ?version=dev to the normal html5 client URL.
