Symbol Control checkboxes
  • The visibility of interactive symbols on the map is controlled through the checkboxes.
  • A brown label indicates that a symbol list hasn't been loaded yet.
  • The marking of an unloaded symbol list initiates loading of that symbol process.
  • A scrolling banner in the status bar in some PC's might inform about the loading process.
  • The progress of the loading process is also shown in the status bar.
  • The start symbol is orange.
  • Symbols of loaded lists are blue.
  • A selected symbol is red - to unselect it click somewhere else on the map.

  • Tip: A red selection symbol can only turn invisible when you unselect it - not through unmarking of checkboxes. This allows the creation of a display/print with a single symbol other than the start symbol.
