    Is there anyway to reset the distance in the roadbook? To start over in the same roadbook, ex after a refueling or a CP?

    The only way I've seen to start again at zero would require you to have a second route and write it up like a new rally route. Typically CPs or fuel stops are not cause for zeroing the rally distance, although an experienced pilot will use that point as a "cardinal" point on the rally to match their rally odo to the roadbook.

    I'm having issue with the software.... :baldy

    I created a route using a .gpx file... saved it periodically.... edited all the tulips with all sorts of info... added random bridges that were crossed... etc etc etc... point is... I spent A LOT of time working on the route...

    anyways... I go to print and I save it to PDF and print a copy... I close the route and open another one... play with it for a few minutes and then open the first one again and ALL my tulip notes are gone!!!!

    all that work down the drain... :cry problem is this has happened to me 3 times already...

    what gives? :ear

    I've seen the same thing. I could recreate the problem by putting a carriage return in either the route description. What I did see is that if there is an issue, when I try to save I don't get a text message confirming "Project saved"

    Guys:

    This has been a persistent problem. I apologize for the headaches and lost work.

    Our developer is aware of this bug and it's TOP of the list. All the bells and whistles dont do much good if you can't save the route.

    Anyway, that's why it's "Beta". Keep the feedback coming.

    I will post when we make any updates to the code and see if this issue get sorted.

    Lots of work left to do.

    There are issues, sure, but we really, really appreciate the effort. It's a great program.
    Thanks

    I thought I'd just forgotten to save :D We really appreciate all that you've done, and all that you continue to do. Have you identified a tell-tale of routes that won't be saved? Knowing that might help us take steps to mitigate. Or is it random so far?

    Hey HomerJ can I peek at your routes? Mine is the Westcreek loop. Feel free to us it. I have yet to pre-run it, but plan to do so this sunday.

    i was having that prob on an ear;lier version. was driving me wild.
    then i updated firefox from the ancient version i orig had.
    dont know if it was the fix but since then with an up to date firefox and the older GE, all has been good.

    So what do you do if while you are working on the route you DO NOT get the "Project saved" message?


    Is there a way to force the software to save the work done?

    It looks like the software does not like to do more than a few saves before it stops saving properly.

    Guys:

    I'm really pulling my hair out on this save issue....suffering along with the rest of you.

    Stand by for some code updates that (hopefully) will get this fixed.

    Thanks for your patience, this bug has been much more difficult that I imagined.

    Mike

    I just started having issues w/ it not saving changes to the road-book. It used to work fine, but despite having made no changes to my computer or the installed software after a couple of saves it starts NOT saving my data.

    Windows 7 Home Premium Edition service pack 1
    FireFox 19.0.2
    Google Earth 6.2.2.6613

    Was working fine, the on Monday I started adding detail to the road-book after having pre-run a portion of the route. When I go to save the changes initially I see the project updated text, then after a few saves it just saves (I see the spinning dots) but do not see the project updated text. At this point if I click out of the page and then come back all the data I added ( new tulips, text annotations, new way points, etc...) is not saved. It seems like it can only take 2-3 proper saves, then stops saving the info.
