The IMS Editor is Windows-based
software for primary use by measurers to edit, store and distribute
data. It is compatible with the ORC Manager software used by rating
officers for production of ORC International and ORC Club certificates,
as well as its designer's version that includes complete calculations
using the ORC VPP (Velocity Prediction Program).
The IMS Editor covers all measurements using the International
Measurement System (IMS) including complete sail and measurement
inventories and declared rig controls and other data. A tooltip within
the program contains information about each field. It can be used for
complete or partial measurement with an easy option to "merge" measured
data to the existing boat data. Measurers can print all or partial
amounts of data as a formal measurement record, and then submit the data
in a DXT file by e-mail to the rating officers and preserve the signed
papers for the record.
For simulation and testing purposes, the software can also be used by
owners and project managers to submit data to designers who have the ORC

Fixes in boat drawing
Removed the obsolete fields from the editor: Fwd
Accomodation, Taper Hollows, Jumper Struts, SPS, BAL, BWT. "No
Backstay" moved below "Transom Graphic" as it does not affect the
rating but only the boar drawing. CPW moved to Super Yacht tab.
"Runners" renamed to "Runners/Checkstays" as
described in the rule.
"Lencticular Rigging" renamed to "Non-Circural
"Dacron Sails" renamed to "Woven Polyester
FSP field is considered obsolete and is replaced
by FSD, which is the actually measured dimension of the luff groove
device (FSP is this dimension multiplied by two). FSP is still
displayed, disabled and striked-out.
FSP is migrated to FSD automatically, for existing data files.
The total weight of the ballast is shown in the
IMPORTANTThe "Flying" field of headsails is now a
drop-down, with options
No: The headsail is set on the forestay.
Yes: The headsail is set flying tacked at TPS.
Inner: The headsail is set flying tacked aft of the forestay. This
case applies to staysails and is treated by the VPP as a regular
headsail, set on the forestay.
The certificate type drop-down now includes the
SY specific certificate types (Measured, Declared, Corinthian). In
turn, the "Data Source" and "Corinthian Certificate" fields have
been removed from the Super Yacht specific tab. Existing SY data
files are migrated to the correct certificate type, but for new data
files make sure to set the certificate type accordingly.
Minor changes and fixes.
