Hi all

I have downloaded a user trek however it has several straight lines joining sections of the trek. These lines are not part of the route but are usually a line drawn from an overnight stop to the end of the trek. I have tried removing Plot Points but the line simply moves to the next Point

How can I remove these unwanted lines without destroying the actual rout.

Below is the Trek I down loaded and you will see at the western end the line I am talking about.

Kulgera - Warakurna
[Route] Distance: 650.35km Points: 1751 Recorded: Dec 2004
From Kulgera to Warakurna (Giles)....

I get them sometimes and usually open up the plot in notepad

and go through and find the errant line

its usally easy to spot as its the first one for a new day and when compared to the others you can see its got wonky digits

just a mattar of deleting it

Hello Wayne

Assume you are using OziExplorer?

In Ozi the issue is caused by the track not conatinng "Section" info i.e track file only contains one "section" and any gaps in the actual track recording are not identified as being a new simple matter of using inbuilt Oziexplorer Split Track function..which splits the track at a certain point and creates a new section not joined by a line to the previous section.

Load the track file and then open "track control" (8th icon along top of screen).

Select "show track list" (4th icon along second row of icons).

Find the point at which you want to split the track - select a point then cycle through the list to the point at which you want to split the track (in your case the point at the exact end (or start) of the offending "line" - red bullseye on screen provides guide to where you are at.

When you have the correct point highlighted select the "Split track" icon (4th icon along the top of Track List screen).

Hope that works for you

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Thanks guys.
That worked ok. Little bit of experimentation and I managed to end up with a Trek with only ONE POINT, deleted everything else. LOL

Reloaded trek and started again. This time success. Worked a treat.

Thank you
