names of locations not appearing on chart

Hello and Merry Christmas Eve to all of you!
I am new to this forum and to OpenCPN. I managed to have OpenCPN working on my computer with my position induced from the AIS device. I see where I am and I see AIS targets.
But the chart does not show any names of islands and locations, even though I have clicked National Text on Chart in the Vector Chart Display
Thank you in advance for your kind assistance!
Jean-Claude

Don't know why it is off by default. But click on the "A" symbol in the symbol bar.

Jean-Claude,

the "A+" button from the toolbar or the key "T" will toggle texts on/off

Jean-Claude,

take your time and go through the manual: the "?" button.
A lot of goodies are waiting for you!
