Short range - Long range chart

Post by onno256 »

Hey everybody,

Maybe my mind is getting myopic, but since a few days F6 doesn't switch between lang range and short range chart anymore...
I can plot routes just fine, but when i want to c
hange to the short range chart (for instance for finding a high techlevel for maintanance), the map gets a bit lighter, I get a slightly different interface (which I can't use) But no zooming in.

Anyone care to help out an old geezer?

Greetz,
Onno.

I think you may have zoomed out the chart. Use PgUp/PgDown to adjust the zoom to the desired level. Pressing F6 while in the chart will toggle search mode, which zooms out fully and expects text input for performing a system name search, when active.

On Windows and Linux you can also use the mousewheel for the zooming stuff.
