Re: DiveLog & DiveMate Sync thru Android

Update for information: Now it works. I didn't do anything other than try again a few days later. Perhaps I rebooted the phone, perhaps there was an update, I don't know. But now the process works: I Import from my dive computer to DM, then I Export from DM, then I go to DL and Import, and it works....

Re: Some customized layout changes do not persist

Understood, many thanks for the background. As a typographer, a small suggestion for a future version: the colons following the labels are not needed, and the non-capitalisation of second and subsequent words in a label would be better European practice. In my opinion this would give a cleaner appea...

Template manager problem

My DL 6.0 template manager (from Main Window / Logbook / Template Manager) does not seem to be functioning as illustrated in the user notes. I see the dialog, but the only thing usable is Delete: Capture.JPG In the Fields tab, I expected to see check boxes to select fields, and edit boxes to change ...

Re: Some customized layout changes do not persist

Thanks for your response - I wonder then what is the function of the 'Abc' button in the field customization dialog. All the other layout editing actions within this box can be used and the results saved. If it is by design that labels cannot change, it does beg the question, why include an editing ...

Re: DiveLog & DiveMate Sync thru Android

Similar problem, similar experiences: DL 1.5 (Build14) for Android, great app, great sync to desktop version via Dropbox. Only feature missing: cannot import new dives from Suunto, so would have to take laptop on liveaboards only for that reason, or use paper and do Suunto downlaoding on PC when bac...

Some customized layout changes do not persist

I have made changes to my layout (name Layout1) - having changed a label (for example 'Max. Depth [m]' changes to 'Max depth'), and saved to a new name (Layout2). When I re-open the Dive Log, (and for confirmation go to Layout and use Open to select Layout2), the label changes are not made. If I mov...

Re: Printing Dive Profile on with coloured background

Many thanks, I understand.

Two follow-ups: is it possible to modify the colour of the profile line, and the placement of the x-axis labels? I can make a nice overlay of temperature onto depth but a new colour for the line and having the labels on the right would make it perfect.

Using temperature profile in report

I have just upgraded from Vyper to Vyper Air and am delighted now to see the temperature graph displayed in the onscreen record. I have been trying but so far failed to incorporate this graphic into my customised print report. Is there a way to do this? So far I can only access air and water temp as...

Designer - Format dive profile

When designing my printed log in the Designer function, my profile graph needs to be rather small to fit onto a Filofax page, and the graph labels (time and depth) are overlapping. I would like to be able to -select font and size for these labels -select intervals of time and depth -select weight of...

Re: Problem using Skydrive

I later uninstalled and reinstalled Diging Log to see if it helped. Q1- my PC's SkyDrive target location has been changed from the default (Win8.1 allows this easily). The reinstall of DL5 did not help. I suspect maybe Diving Log expects to find SkyDrive at the default place. Cannot see a way to con...

Problem using Skydrive

First I used DropBox as the sync mechanism to link to my WinPhone. No problem. Then I realised that there would be a benefit for me to using SkyDrive, but as soon as I hit the Web/Skydrive button I get the attached error ( and similar error messages if I say Continue and try the links on the Skydriv...

Re: Some basic questions from a beginner

Thank you, much appreciated. All is clear, except for "You can access all linked items like buddies from the "Details" dropdown:" I can indeed access the linked items from this place, but only to view them. I cannot figure how to edit a linked item from the resulting 'Tree Browser' window. To change...

Some basic questions from a beginner

I apologise with such basic questions. I have looked for some way to find out for a beginner but was not able to locate the place to find basic instructions. 1 When entering a new dive, I must fill in fields Country / CityIsland / Dive Site and Buddy. In each case I have the choice of a) simply ente...

City/Island map tab

Could someone help me please to understand the correct way to add a map to a City/island entry. I click the Link symbol in the dive log window and the City/Island Details popup appears. I can add or edit a new record but can find no way to do anything to the Map tab.
