Score orienteering is not implemented in OCAD yet. Although there are options to create a score orienteering event with OCAD.

The idea behind a ScoreO is, that the runners have a certain timespan, in which they have to collect as many controls (or points) as possible.

Use all Controls

The simplest way is to set controls, a start and a finish and then print all controls. There will be no need to Create a New Course. The disadvantage of this method is that you cannot make classes, so all participants will have the same controls.

You can Change the Code of the controls in a way: 31 -> 31-[20]; 32 -> 32-[10]; 33 -> 33-[20]
Like this you can weighten the controls (distant and more difficult controls give more points) and the runner see the points on the map.

Hide Connection Lines

A different method is hiding the connection lines. Do the following:

  1. Create a New Course.
  2. Add Course Objects to it.
  3. Search the symbol for the Connection Line in the symbol box.
  4. Hide the symbol.
  5. Search the symbol for the Control Number in the Control Description.
  6. Hide the symbol.
  7. Set the numbering in the Course Setting Options to Code only.
  8. Change the Code of the controls in a way: 31 -> 31-[20]; 32 -> 32-[10]; 33 -> 33-[20].
  9. If you change to the Preview mode, the course looks like a score orienteering course now.

hint Add controls in their numerical order to the course to get them rightly sorted on the control description. The length of the course can be edited in the Courses dialog in the column for extra length. Extra length can be negative.

Hide Single Connection Lines

Deleting single connection lines is not possible but you can use a trick. Change to the Preview mode and drag the end point of the connection line to the start point, so that they start and end at the same point. This makes the connection line invisible. You can use this method when you have a part of arbitrary control order within a normal course.

hint Add controls in their numerical order to the course to get them rightly sorted on the control description. The length of the course can be edited in the Courses dialog in the column for extra length. Extra length can be negative.
