I have just purchased the Exp. Charts for Far Bahamas for Open CPN and am wondering if I can open a small scale chart like is included in the printed version . Much apreciated if anyone can tell me how to accomplish this.
Hi! I just purchased the Explorer Charts from o-charts.org for OpenCPN and indeed Chart 1 is missing (from all three sets in fact). Makes getting the larger picture for longer passage planning difficult. Any chance in getting Chart 1 added?
Tried this but no Chart 1 is included with the Far Bahamas set of Explorer charts
that I can find . Perhaps its included with one of the other two sets.

We received this response regarding your query:
Chart1 should be included.
You can activate chart outlines (the "o" key toggles them).
Then you take the "chart piano" below. Hovering over it will reveal the details of the chart represented and the chart will be highlighted on the canvas.
If you go to single chart mode (as opposed to quilted charts) the rectangles of the piano will have sharp corners and not the round ones indicating quilted charts. Clicking on the rectangle will select that chart and of can go one by one.
Quilting gets toggled with the "q" short cut key.
One has access to the settings as well via the canvas menu, the "hamburger" in the right corner, where we find the scale as well. Clicking on the scale will allow to force a scale for representation.
The chart piano is sorted by scale: small scale to the right...
Yes Kate . Exactly . Thank you for looking into this .
Gene, We are also checking with OpenCPN to see what is possible. It sounds to me like you are looking to view Chart 1 from our chartbooks which gives an overview of the entire Bahamas. Is that correct?
Thank you for your query. We are not sure how to answer your question. You should be able to zoom in or out for any scale that you desire and the data will be either augmented or reduced. Meanwhile, it might be better for you to contact OpenCPN for details on how to maneuver in their app. Hope this is helpful. Glad you are sailing with the Explorer Chart data! You wouldn't want to go without it.
