Charts Toolbar, Print and Sketch and Annotate Charts 

This topic will go through the toolbar allowing you to toggle between day and night mode, print, sketch and add charts to your clipboard. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

Charts Toolbar

We will now have a look at the charts toolbar.

The charts toolbar is only visible when you are viewing arrival, alternate and departure charts and when viewing documents. The chart toolbar is always located in the left side of the screen. Not all the buttons on the toolbar are available on all screens

Let's go and look at the chart toolbar in more detail and see what these buttons do to the chart.

This button allows you to toggle between day and night mode. You are currently viewing the chart in day mode.


The lock button allows you to lock the current view of a chart or document. When
locked, the lock icon turns blue and the rotate icon is disabled along with zoom
and pan functionality. Tap the lock button a second time to release the current view 

The arrow button allows you to rotate the chart or document to clockwise

The paperclip button allows you to add the charts or documents to clipboard for quick
access. When selected, the icon turns blue and the plus turns to a minus. See Clipboard and Bookmarks for more information.


The print button allows you to print a chart to a printer connected to your computer.


The Sketch and Annotate button opens the sketch toolbar that allows you to make sketches and annotations on a chart. When the marker button is activated the button reflects the marker color chosen in the Settings screen. See Sketch and Annotate charts for more information.
