Hi Medway Maniac,

First all the versions for the last couple of years have been file compatible. OK if you use a feature that is only in a newer version then that won't work in the older version and any thing specific to that feature will of course not be saved but for general work there is no problem

To edit any competitor field simply click on the field and press enter - you can then edit it or select from the presented dropdown - I think that is what you are looking for.

Double clicking will bring up the whole competitor form for editing.

So if you want to change a helm/crew name select it and press enter - Bingo

Hope this helps

Jon

Thanks for the tip, but actually that is another good example of something only a very regular user would learn and remember.  

I'm sure that most of ROs would prefer a more Excel-like interaction, even if it was just one of the F2 or double-click Excel options, or as I said before, if when the whole competitor form was brought up on double-clicking, the cursor was already in the appropriate place corresponding to the double-clicked cell.

Hi Medway Maniac

If you didn't already know 2.18.5 is available from the Sailwave site.  This allows you to use the F2 key to edit a cell (Same as Excel ) and you also have the Copy Paste and Cut available on the competitor cells.
2.19.0 is available on request now and will be released generally very soon this has the other feature that was on your wish list.  Double click on a competitor parameter cell and the competitor form is display on the matching tab and the field you clicked is selected and highlighted.

Let me know what you think

Thanks Jon.  Yes, I was aware of 2.18.5, but it's beta, and we are delaying updating the club's laptops until there is a stable version.

Certainly steps in the right direction.
