I hovered over it and tried to hoover it up but nothing... just approx 50% yellow bar.
Thats both with 3.2.2 on W7 and 4.0.0 on El Capitan.

Seems to me it references the different e-charts you have that cover the area. Select one of them, each in turn, and see which one serves best for the area in question.

4.0.0 for Mac OS X should have never been released. It has serious and well known bugs but the developers refused to deliver an update. Try the latest beta versions 4.1.xx instead for Mac OS X where most of the bugs are fixed.
