I need help/coaching! I unable to use PointBlank 2.0 after having been a frequent user of the original PointBlank ballistics software program from 2004 - 2008. Then in 2008 or 2009, PointBlank 2.0 was introduced and the original program was 'pulled down'. I am 79 years old, and consider myself to be reasonably competent with personal technology, but as a Geek Squad technician recently explained to me.."you're OK, but light years behind a 12-year-olds who have been playing video games since they were 3 years old".

I'd appreciate advice anyone can give me on how I can get "up to speed" with the current PointBlank software. Here are a couple frustrating items: (1) I recently acquired a .30-40 Krag. I plugged in the data for a specific load and when I clicked on Trajectory, the graph for that load appeared along with 3 other calibers that I run a few years earlier. So, how do I eliminate the other 3 trajectory curves so that I see only the .30-40 trajectory curve? (2) I have not figured out how to print graphs and tables on the current program. How do I do that?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Oldpeddler…I’ll move this post to the Pointblank Forum mate. Someone will be along soon to address your problems…DallanC, the developer of the software, is a busy man, but checks in regularly.

Two ways. Switch to the load you dont want drawn, lets call it the Load 2 tab. Under the draw color set it to "Not Drawn". The other way is to put in an invalid value like 0 for Velocity. Only valid trajectories will be computed and drawn using a valid color. Change either of those and it wont draw.

The Print button at the top menu bar, will print out whatever "view" is currently displayed. So to print a trajectory first compute it, then click Print and it will give you a preview of what would be printed. To print table data, switch to the Table view, then again click the Print button.

Hope that helped, let me know if you run into other issues.

v1.8 was a cobbled up mess of software. It came into being from me making the basic functionality and people suggesting more and more features that I implemented. None of them were planned for in the beginning so it became a unwieldy mess to maintain over time.

Switching to a hierarchy of calibers / guns / loads / targets made things WAY easier and cleaner to use. But I still had the issue of people who only used the database side, and others only cared about the ballistics side. And the 3rd set wanted to quickly calculate ballistics from database entries. That was a little tricky of copying values over for the database crowd, while still keeping it easy to use for the ballistic users side.

LOL
