Hi, attempting to export some vector data imported from GPX files to a GeoPackage. Here's what I get:

Error exporting to table points

    Please report this directly to Blue Marble Geographics Support via e-mail (, and include the GPX file that is causing the problem.  I seem to recall that some GPX files can have colons in the attribute names (you can check this using the Feature Information tool).  If that is the case, I suspect the colons are causing the problem during export.

    I submitted earlier this week, and will advise when I hear back.
