Chart group selection

Have had a read through the manual below and have not seen it mentioned so guess it can't be done.........yet.

https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...art_groups_tab

For areas where CM93 is lacking, sometimes SASplanets CMap overlay provides more information and I save it as an MBTile and put it in a separate folder called MBCharts so as to keep it separate from the satellite MBtiles.

I then run my screen in dual mode, only cm93 selected in chart groups on one side and all selected on the other but there is no way to know which tab is MBCharts without clicking, clicking and more clicking closing off tabs.

Is there a way of selecting cm93 and the mbChart folder only on one side so when I come into an area that is lacking there will only be the MBCharts tabs to toggle, not all the satellite imagery as well?

I did think that putting the mbchart file in with cm93 may have worked but it did not.

Thanks.

Re: Chart group selection

You can create a chart group with MBtiles and CM93 in the same group. Then you see piano keys at the bottom only for MBtiles and CM93. A single click on the magenta color MBtiles keys will turn off MBtiles and then you see CM93 chart. Click magenta MBtiles keys again and MBTiles chart comes back on.
