Often, an orienteering competition starts with a marked route to the start point. Nowadays, you also mark the Map Issue Point. It’s the place where you get the map and it is marked with a horizontal line.
There is a symbol 702.000 for the Map Issue Point. If your course setting project contains just one start, that’s all right. However, it get’s annoying if there are more than one start and Map Issue Points, as all of them will be show in Course Preview.
It’s better to include the Map Issue Point into the marked route, that leads to the start point. For that, you need to insert a Corner Vertex into the marked route.
Now, the Map Issue Points will only be displayed if the corresponding course is previewed/ exported.
Functions that may be affected by this error message includes New Map Wizard, Rotate Map to Magnetic North, Magnetic Declination and Online Map Services.
This bug will not be not fixed in OCAD 12.
How did this error happen?
Open Street Map no longer supports Internet Explorer, which was previously used in OCAD to display web content. That’s why OCAD uses now Microsoft Edge WebView2. Microsoft Edge WebView2 is already installed on computers running Windows 11, but not on older versions of Windows. Therefore, the Microsoft Edge WebView2 must be installed manually on these devices.
For a long distance orienteering race, the following courses and classes are offered.
– Long Course, Class WE, Scale 15’000 – Medium Course, Class W18, Scale 10’000 – Medium Course, Class M60, Scale 7’500 – Short Course, Class M80, Scale 7’500
Thanks to the Canvases function, all courses and/or classes can be automatically exported as PDF from a single course setting project in the specified scale and layout. Especially for larger events, this reduces the time required and potential sources of error.
