Chart Choice

I am new to OpenCPN and have a question: can both vector and raster charts be loaded into OpenCPN? If so, how do you change viewing between the two? Thank you

Re: Chart Choice

Both can be loaded at the same time and you change between then by clicking on the yellow or blue chart bar in the bottom of the display.

Re: Chart Choice

Also I find it useful to make an RNC chart group and an Enc chart group. Just right click and pick which group you want when using O.
