Can I change the warning text printed on the first tape?
Yes, just update « EN warning.rtf » (english), « FR avertissement.rtf » (french), « PL ostrzezenie.rtf » (polish) or create your own one. Just use the RTF format and the correct file extension.

Mostly in « C:\ProgramData\LogbookFactory\ »

Go in the « ? » menu, then « Langue » , and choose « English » . Voilà.

Too bad, get a PC and install Windows. 😛

Pourquoi cette page est en anglais? (why is this page in english?)
De plus en plus de non-francophones utilisent ce logiciel, et puis c’est la langue officielle du geocaching. La page en français est ici.
