Position file not being produced

Reported by: Raymond Duffy Owned by: Olly Betts
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: aven Version: 1.2.37
Keywords: hand plotting Cc:


I've been able to convert the 3d file for hand plotting to get coordinates for particular stations, very useful for finding the cave end on the surface. This feature seems to have stopped working and keeps asking me to look for another program to process the data. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or is the feature no longer available in Aven?

Are you using Microsoft Windows and accessing this via right click in the file manager?

If so, this was a change in 1.2.35:

  • (Microsoft Windows version): Drop two options from explorer bindings. "Convert to DXF" and "Convert for hand plotting" have both been supported via aven for a while, and that's a more useful way to access them as you can control what gets exported.

To convert to .pos now, load the .3d file into aven, then it's menu entry "File->Export as...", select "Survex pos" for "Export format".

You probably want "Station Names" on (otherwise you just get the coordinates). By default all stations are exported (like the old way), but you can select Entrances and/or Fixed Points and/or Exported Stations to limit what's exported.

Click the "Export" button once you've selected and choose a filename (the default is the same leafname with a .pos extension but you can change that unlike the old way).

Looks like you reported this before 9 months ago: #126

The old explorer bindings are meant to get removed automatically but it seems that hasn't worked for you at least.
