Max Detail Here

I just upgraded OpenCPN to version 5.0.0. I like the new look and feel, but I have a problem when I want to open a chart at a different location. In the old version, I would right click at the place where I want to open the chart, and select "Max Detail Here" and it would display the largest scale chart in my library. With the new version, it takes me back to my ship location.
As a work-around, I can first click "Move Boat Here", and then "Max Detail Here", but that doesn't seem right. Am I missing something?

Thanks, Ron

Ron..
To achieve something you describe would be to "single click" for center the charts and then click the leftmost chart bar in the bottom list. ("Show chart bar" must be selected in Options->User Interface)

Re: Max Detail Here

Using split screen to keep the overview?


As Hakan stated: the chart bar below is ordered by chart scales - the largest on the left. Hovering over a chart indicator will highlight the corresponding chart.
