Create an area

An area consists of a series of Corners, joined by lines. With Nuno Navigator you can create and store a virtually unlimited number of areas. You can assign a name to an area and add a comment. Like all overlay objects you can organize areas into folders along with other overlay objects such as routes, points and lines.

You can create marked areas on the chart for any purpose. Nuno Navigator has some basic classifications. You can then name the area and add comments about it.

To create an area, in the main window

Image:CreateArea_Step1.png Right click on the chart where you want the first corner.

Choose "Area" from the menu.

Image:CreateArea_Step2.png Click on the chart again for each corner. An area must have at least three corners; there's no maximum number of corners.

Image:CreateArea_Step3.png To complete the area, press C or click on the first corner.

To delete the last corner you added, press ESC or right click.

You can also start a new area by clicking on the "Make Area" button.

There are several techniques you can use to refine an area once created:

  • Move an existing corner using the mouse to "click and drag".
  • Add an additional corner by drag copying an existing one ("click and drag" with the ctrl key pressed).
  • Delete a corner by selecting it (by clicking) and pressing DEL.

You can still zoom (using the mouse wheel or +/- keys) and pan the chart (holding the mouse near the edge of the chart), when adding a route.

As with any type of overlay, you can reverse your recent changes to areas using the Undo button. You can restore your undone changes using the Redo button.
