  • Better…

Something to add for next update

During my meet today -- I made a mistake and missed a bib number.  There was over 300 runners in the race, so not knowing a different way I had to redo the whole race from the mistake on.  Is there a better way?  I know in Hy-Tek there is a way to add a space in between runners.  I tried the edit bibs part when we found out a bib number fell in another race, but it did not seem to have a add feature.  Actually when I tried the edit bib part it caused names to repeat after the number I…

Labels "over print" info

I wanted to change info to go on my labels and now new information prints over old information.  I cleared all the items for the labels and added again (%bn, %ln) etc. to no avail. I even setup a new meet using my template and get the same results.  Is there some where in RaceTab to delete add label info and start over?

Release 3.84

I am hoping 3.84 fixes the XC issues that some have been having. The two primary issues I've seen seem at least somewhat related: scrambling of bib #s and "mysterious" increment of places from hidden entries.

Both of these stem from earlier or imported entries into the race from other heats. Obviously there are no heats/rounds in cross country, but we were carrying over a lot of code from track in generating those reports. If everyone was round=1 and heat=1 like they should be in XC…

XC Meet will not score properly

I ran a meet today which I set up from a template of a previous meet and when I try to score the meet it seems to add the places on top of the meet that was used as a template.  None of the previous meet result show in publisher but it shows todays winner as 33rd.  There were 32 runners in the template meet.  I have spent 4 hours trying to correct this with no success.  I cleared all result data but don not wish to start over with a complete new meet since I reuse number packets for schools…

Race Tab

can letters be programmed into the software for bib entry purposes.  I am directing/timing a xc championship meet and the athletes have letters in their numbers.

Font Sizes for Bibs

Fisrt, thank you for adding the ability to change fonts and sizes.  I must be doing something incorrectly because I cannot get it to print with different fonts/sizes.

Also, I have a suggestion, when time permits.  It would be nice if we were capable of printing Bib Labels for a single team/school or specific Bib Numbers.  Sometimes athletes and or teams are added to a meet after labels are originally printed.

How do I print a list of athletes entered in each division of a XC meet

I have used race tab for several years and can't figure out the new update.  I have entered all of the athletes for my cross country meet and have assigned each athlete into their division.  I would like to print a form for each race so I can see the athletes entered (this is before I score the events).  How do I do this with the new update.

Font Sizes

Can Font sizes be changed when printing labels in the publishing section?  I would like to make the Bib # larger on the label.
