MaxSea Recovery Back to Valhalla's Mooring Page
If, during your use of the MaxSea program things aren’t working like they should (e.g. you double clicked on a route without launching the MaxSea program) you can usually/normally/often recover by closing the program completely, hold down the CTL key and launch the program. This brings up the following screen: (You might have to do this several times if you don’t get this screen)
Click OK and the program will start and begin a search for charts. When done you will have something like this:
Select the line CM93ed2 and click OK. Note that the program has, in addition, found the Vector / S57 charts which are also installed in this case. If you want to also view these charts within the MaxSea program do another search (File/Open Chart) and select the line Vector / S57. When MaxSea is running you can switch between the charts (Click on ‘Windows’ and select the desired chart version).
This reset will also restore the Planning Route Center (when a planning route is displayed) to the original format with many useless columns.
The unwanted columns are deleted by right-clicking on a column heading and selecting 'Hide This Column'
The columns I find the most useful are the following (after deleting 23 unwanted ones):
