(Is there a special thread or sub category where this topic fits better than here? Couldn't find it.. Please advice me or move this thread in that case.)


First I have to say, great program. Best there is Smile

I have used routeconverter a while and have made up some thoughts about what would make this even better (for my part):
- Arrow keys will always control the position list, even if I click on a point on the map.
- When deleting points in the middle of a track the map doesn't readjust itself.
- A button that merge tracks, when a file contains more than one track.

There is no special thread for this. But to optimize you could split up your wishes to one per thread with a meaningful title.

Thank you.

I've tried and miserably failed to achieve this. For the programmers: the map is not a native Java Swing component, but an external process (IE on Windows) that is wrapped in a Eclipse SWT component which in turn is wrapped in a DJNative Swing component. It's a miracle to me why this works ;-)

Please provide me with a test file and a detailed description how to reproduce this.

That's already there: select a track and a position and then choose Positionlist->Merge...->the name of the track you'd like to merge

If I zoom in on a track and delete a point, the map resets it self to show the whole track. (Also tested in current version 2.9) If there are several positions I want to delete I have to zoom in to the point for every time I press delete. (Sorry for bad explanation. Mabye I should take a screen capture of it..)

This can't be the way its supposed to work. I guess I have to look through the options again in case I have overseen something.

You're right. And it used to work until I've optimized RouteConverter for very large tracks. That broke the usability at several places. I have uploaded a new prerelease that brings back the 2.8 behaviour where a selected position remains in the map section even after zooming when you've enabled the option "Center map after zooming". Please test and report.
