How to make text names appear on ECN charts?

I have everything selected but no names for cm93 or Noaa charts appear.

Show Text in the bottom right menu. Or just pressing "T" toggles it on and off

Click on the "3 bars" just below it. (The "3 bars" aka "hamburger" has become sort of a de facto standard for a menu icon in recent times (You will see it on a lot of modern websites and mobile phone apps).


You can click on the one at the top of the left hand menu to minimize/open that menu as well.

Re: How to make text names appear on ECN charts?

Why do the cm93 text names look so much better than the noaa chart names?
How to fix it so both look equally good.

I seem to recall it being that way before, which was why I liked cm93 much better,

Back river channel light 8 text is missing on cm93, but shows on noaa.
Its obviously a mess
If I click text off, all text disappears
Obvious big difference in appearance.

There is also another option "Important text only" under Charts > vector Chart display
