Snuppesno...

Those compass course are indicated for "Recommended Track" features in the chart. They seem to appear most numerously in Scandinavia. Most handy in the fog....

You may select Display Category = Mariners Standard, and then de-select "Recommended Tracks" in Options->Charts->VectorCharts->Mariners Standard listbox.



Thanks
Dave

Re: Text on charts

Hi Pavel,

thanks for your help.. in that area/level of detail when I click on A I get this..no sure if this is some sort of clue or not.

Most areas of the chart I get nothing when I click on A

Re: Text on charts

oops,

figured it out. Selecting "important text only" in fact pretty much removes all text from the chart.
