Video Version

Select Chart Layouts List from the Runway Charts Menu, and click on an existing chart layout name to edit, or click the green New button to create a new layout. 

Give the new layout a name and a description, and decide what aircraft type(s) you want it to apply to, then click Save. Each aircraft type can only be linked to one chart layout. 

Standard Elements

Elements are sorted by scope, then alphabetically.

Waypoint Elements collect data from the waypoints database that apply to the whole airport / LZ. 

Runway Elements are items collected from the database that are specific to a particular runway 

Aircraft Type and Runway Elements are specific to an aircraft type on a given runway. Some items are collected from the database, others you will have to fill in. If you have more than one runway or more than one aircraft type, they will be different for each runway/aircraft combination.
