NOAA chart boundaries -- how to remove?

A typical view of any area on Long Island Sound (my home area) will display red rectangles showing the boundaries of the various NOAA charts that make up the view. They are completely unnecessary and just clutter things up. Is there any way to remove them? Thanks, ML

Got it at last, thanks. Had to click Interface Options first to restore the Menu Bar, then go into View as you instructed. All fine now. ML

The Alt key will toggle the Menu Bar on or off. It works well on a Windows computer with a keyboard. The chart canvas needs to have "the focus". It won't work if a dialog box has the focus.

The Chart Outlines can be toggled on or off from the Chart Panel Options menu. This menu is opened or closed using the menu button (3-bar icon sometimes called a "hamburger") that is in the bottom-right corner of the chart canvas.

Here is a screen shot:

The two panel layout for the screen was enabled by using the menu under the top-left menu button on the chart canvas. Select Options, Display, General tab and Canvas Layout. Click on the picture of the one or two-panel layout.

The screen shot shows charts near San Francisco. Raster charts (RNC) on the left and vector charts (ENC) on the right.

The simplest way to turn chart outlines on/off, is the "O"- key shortcut.
