If OCAD Team licenses are transferred frequently, it can happen that a license gets “lost”. This can happen, for example, if a user does not correctly transfer or block the Team license.
Users of Team licenses can now select the option Deactivate this license automatically when closing OCAD in the License Manager. This will automatically release the Team license when OCAD is closed. The license must then be reactivated when OCAD is started again.
The latest mapping standard for sprint orienteering maps, called ISSprOM 2019, has been published by the International Orienteering Federation (IOF). The document can be downloaded from the IOF website.
OCAD has implemented the new standard in their symbol sets, which you get with the latest Service Update. The ISSprOM 2019 is valid from 1 January 2020. Until then, the current ISSOM 2007 is still in use.
In order to keep track of all the different symbol sets that have been released lately, we created the Wiki page Symbol Set Overview. There you’ll also learn how to convert your maps to the new standards.
Impassable vegetation (410) is forbidden to cross. Previous ISSOM 2007 Impassable vegetation symbol (421) using green 100% and black 50% has been removed.
Paved area with little (Brown 30%) and heavy traffic (Brown 50%).
New symbol for paved area in multilevel structures.
New symbols for passable walls, fountains and trees.
In OCAD, you can create objects with pair of coordinates. Copy coordinates e.g. from Google Maps to clipboard. When you press Paste in the OCAD window (Ctrl + V or in the Menu Object> Paste), a dialogue window appears.
Now you have three options: You can move the view to this coordinates, create point objects at the coordinates or create line or area objects (only available if more than one pair of coordinates exists).
To use this function properly, a coordinate system has to be defined and the pasted coordinates need to fit to this coordinate system.
