Sailor Logbook S App manual
Track editor

Local TOC

General (top)

Purpose: display, enter and modify Track textfields in a secure manner.

The Track editor opens from:

Track title checks (top)

Partly for technical reasons, partly to protect the Sailor Logbook Website against hacking, some rules apply for texts. If broken, they are considered insecure.

Insecure texts are not saved in the App until corrected. Likewise, if a text is changed so its content is no longer secure, the change will not be saved.

Check the general description of the Track editor before continuing with this chapter.

Both Track title and Comments can be edited directly on the Track mainpage. Same rules apply there as described below.

Before a track is modified, these checks are done:

Length (top)

Track editor - title length check

Insecure words (top)

Same rules as for Text-note in Insecure words in Event editor.

Insecure characters (top)

Same rules as for Text-note in Insecure characters in Event editor.

Emojis (top)

Same rules as for Text-note in Emojis in Event editor.

Comments checks (top)

The Comments field is for free-text. However, a few rules apply also here:

Length (top)

Track editor - comments length check

No room for all of this manual!

Insecure words (top)

Same rules as for Text-note in Insecure words in Event editor.

Single quotation mark followed by comma (top)

Being a free-form textfield, there are no insecure characters as is the case for the Track title. However, a straight single quotation mark - see below - may not be followed by a comma:

Track editor - character sequence check

Here the quote is straight: Smart Punctuation is OFF. When ON, this message doesn't apply.

Entering a single space between the quote and the comma would solve the problem, even when Smart Punctuation is OFF.

Quotation marks (top)

Can be straight or smart, depending on the Smart Punctuation introduced in iOS 11. Find this switch in:

Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Smart Punctuation:

Track editor - re Smart Punctuation

When OFF, the keyboard sends straight quotes - when ON, smart quotes are sent. The setting has influence on whether a quote is considered an insecure character and thus rejected in Track title and Event Text-note.
