Bottom statusbar

Just downloaded OpenCPN ver 4.5.221 and I am new to the program.
Have used MaxSea for many years.

Is it possible to move the bottom status bar to somewhere else on the
display? Quite difficult to read where it is now.

Re: Bottom statusbar

Everything in the statusbar, except for the chart scale, is available through the Dashboard, which is very flexible.
