New Course Setting Functions

New functions for the OCAD Course Setting module have been added with the latest Service Update 18.2.2.

– With the Compose Course tool, course setting has become faster and easier. First click adds a start object, each additional click adds a control point and double click adds a finish object to the map and the course.

– To start successfully with a Course Setting project, we added the New Course Setting Project Wizard. This wizard guides you through the first steps, like choosing the right symbol set and loading a map file in the background layer.

The new functions will be explained briefly in this video.

Change between Drawing Modes

This function makes it easier to combine curves and straight lines. Furthermore, this drawing mode might be more intuitive for people new to OCAD.

Change between Drawing Modes

First activate the option Curve mode: Change to straight line mode when clicking in drawing area in the Preferences -> Drawing and Editing tab.

Start drawing the curve as usual. To draw a straight line, just click in the drawing area. This way, you can easy switch between straight line mode and curve mode. Double click the left mouse button to finish drawing.
