Drawing straight lines on charts - suggestions for VFR tools

Hi folks,
Thanks so much to Navigraph for adding the annotation feature. As we have been asked explicitly to open a new topic when we have other suggestions to this feature, this is what I would love to see in further developments:

A function to draw these highlighter lines as straight lines (for example while pressing a specific key) as you have in some graphics editors, if possible with the magnetic direction showing as well.

This would be a great tool for planning and executing VFR flights.

Hello! Welcome to our forum!

You seem to have read that we want new topics for each feature, but it seems like you have included three different features in this topic - only one of which is a new request. Just keep that in mind in the future, we still appreciate the feedback!

There is already a broad, yellow-colored pen option. However, this can’t be used on the map! For that feature, please see this topic: Annotating/drawing on the enroute map

Please see this existing topic: Add a distance/bearing ruler

This is a great suggestion, and I would like to ask that you either:

  • Edit this topic to make this the main (only) feature request
  • Create a new topic dedicated tho this feature request

Kind Regards,

Fantastic ideas, EXACTLY what I was looking for when searched on this forum.
The annotations from Navigraph are a great addition and I applaud them.
But having had a stroke and no longer able to write by hand I was adding a straight line tool to my wish list.
