  1. Hi, some time ago I noticed a problem with the handling of decimal separators in Cachly for german users. One part seems fixed, but there are still issues: Coordinate projection: When entering bearing and distance you get the numeric keyboard and for german users the decimal separator will be the comma. The bearing seemed to be interpretated correctly now since 90,1 gave me neew coordinates in the east. But it looks like the decimal places ar ignored. I made another test with 180°, 180,1°, 180,9° and 181°. I would have expexted that 180° and 180,1° give nearly the same result and 180,9° and 181° give nearly the same result. But the resulting coordinates for 180°, 180,1° and 180,9° are all the same. This can't be right. And the distance is even worse. Giving a distance of 50,01 m the new coordinates were 5 km away instead of roundabout 50 m. Pasting coordinates: Similar probleme here. At this place I have a normal keyboard thus I have the possibility to use a dot and I can work around, but it is annoying. At this place both should work because german users will usually get coordinates with dot when using internet tools but coordinates with comma when using tools on their phone which respect the language settings. Since dot and comma won't appear together (N52° 28.123 E9° 50.123 OR N52° 28,123 E9° 50,123) this should be possible. Best, David

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Great, I'll keep you informed.

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Any news on this one?

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Just tested with a new cache I never touched before. Going back to the offline cache while my phone is offline showed the same strange behaviour as before: the corrected coordinates show up in the list of user waypoints (normally the coordinate ovverride doesn't show up in the list of user waypoints) and in the list of cache waypoints the original coordinates show also the corrected coordinates. Go back online, switch to the main page of the cache, pull down to update and the waypoints are fixed: no user waypoint and original coordinates which are the original ones

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Thats right but the caches where I first encountered this problem were done 1 week ago and downloaded for the first time 2 weeks ago. By the way: what meens 'long time ago'. It's only half a year ago I started using Cachly. If it helps I will repeat this test with a cache I never touched before

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Just tested. What I did: Create a test list Go to live view Select a cache with corrected coordinates Selected 'Add to list' from the 'list actions' menu Add to my list Switch to list Selected cache from list Go to Waypoints Result: A user waypoint named 'Coordinate override' with corrected coordinates and a cache waypoint named 'Original coordinates' also with the corrected coordinates Go back to the main screen of the cache and pull down Return to waypoints Result: No user waypoint but a cache waypoint named 'Original coordinates' with the original coordinates (this is what I would expect) Close Cachly Go offline Start Cachly Select the test cache in the test list Go to Waypoints Result: A user waypoint named 'Coordinate override' with corrected coordinates and a cache waypoint named 'Original coordinates' also with the corrected coordinates Hope this helps. Best, David

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Cachly 5.2.5 (1) iPhone 6 iOS with iOS 12.4 Yes, I can replicate this. Just switched my phone offline, took a Cache at random from one of my offline lists, looked at Waypoints\Cache\Original Coordinates and it showed the corrected coordinates instead of the original ones. Then I switch my phone back online, go back to the main screen of the cache, pull down for update, go back to the waypoints and the original coordinates are OK. Best, David
  8. Yesterday I was caching and had an issue with Cashly. At one point on our hiking tour in the mountains we had problems finding a cache and wanted to check our coordinate projection. Based on what Cashly showed as 'Original coordinats' in the list of cache waypoints we did the coordinate projection again. Unfortunately what Cashly showed as 'Original coordinates' were in fact the 'Corrected coordinates'. So I made a second projection on the already projected coordinates and ended at a completely wrong place. I attached three screenshots. They show a solved Mystery. You see the main screen of the cache with the corrected coordinates and two screenshots of the waypoints. Once it shows the 'Original coordinates' as they should be and once it shows 'Original coordinates' which are in fact the corrected coordinates. Best, David
  9. Hi, This morning I realized the handling of trackables stopped working. Whenever the inventory of trackables is accessed (trackables in bottom menu or while logging a cache) I get an error message: "kilometersTraveled is not a supported property Parameter name: currentProperty" (see screenshot) I restarted Cachly and also logged out and back in to my GC account - didn't help.

    Markup issue when editing logs

    Markups for bold and italic text are lost when editing logs. This morning I created and posted a found log while I was at the cache. At home I edited this log to complete it. The screenshots illustrate what happened. The screenshot with the ** shows what I saw while editing the log. The screenshot with the bold text is what I saw in the preview. And the screenshot without ** and bold text is what is online after I posted my changes. iPhone 6/iOS 12.3.1/Cachly 5.1.4 (2) Best, David

    Customize Color Order

    A real tagging system, where several tags can be assigned to a cache instead of only one color marker (I know, we had this topic in another thread :-), might solve diorex problem. But yes, I know, this would be a major change that is not planned.
  12. Good point. I am optimistic that you will find the good mix.
  13. And this zoom level can be configured? Because different users willl probably have different ideas regarding the zoom level that should be the threshold between "preserve zoom level" and "zoom in".
  14. Hi, right now I make preparations for my vacation and that drew my attention to something. I have a lot of lists and sometimes it's hard to keep track of them. But they fall into certain cathegories: Some default PQ covering my home zone Several lists for different cache series I want to keep track of Lists of caches for completing some challanges Lists for vacation Misc It would be helpful if I could organize these lists in folders Best, David

    Purge Logs

    What about an option to preserve your own logs regardless of number or date
