Comparing routes within different list folders?

Post by w2ge »

Is there any way to compare routes that are not in the same list folder?

I.e. I’d like to be able to choose 2 or 3 routes that aren’t in the same list folder and have them all “Show on map” without first having to copy them all into one list folder. Possible?

TIA,
Phil

Afraid not, best you can do is see all lists within one folder by selecting the parent folder or all folders by selecting the top folder. You can't select two folders only.

Unless I have misunderstood, all I do is have a subfolder called TEST in which I copy and paste all relevant routes, waypoints, etc. Then after planning I either delete them or use ‘remove them from this folder’ to preserve them elsewhere.

I do the same but the OP was about avoiding having to do that ;)

Thanks, suss. Oh well...

That is definitely Something I’d want on a “wish list“ but I understand Basecamp is basically “fully developed “ ...🤦‍♂️ another similar wish is choosing only certain waypoints to grab to put into a new route. Like what can do in Windows, choosing What you want with the <Ctrl > key. I have over 4,000 waypoints in my saved waypoint list. Dragging one at a time is a pia.

Well you can group select now and create a route from that selection so you already have what you want, Ctrl + click works in BaseCamp just as in Windows. :D
