SOH and COG display

SOG and COG on Open CPN. Is there a way to view SOG and COG on the main screen -- maybe as part of the Dashboard. Only seeing SOG and COG a "task bar" at the bottom of the computer screen. Really tough for old eyes to see the fine print!

Dash board. Pretty easy... Enable dashboard plug in, Go to preferences and you can make the font as big as you want...

You may try the Status bar plugin and adapt it to your needs.

Depends on what platform you're using. Status Bar plugin doesn't really work on RPI or Linux Mint (at least I can't make it work right) but works well on OpenSuse. I don't do Windows or Mac so can't comment on those.

Thanks to kcj and Hakan. Followed you instructions and everything I wanted is on the dashboard in a legible, "old guy" size font. Appreciate your help!!
