Quick guide and short introduction

  The center of the application is a Cartesian coordinate system in which the distance is displayed on the x-axis and the time on the y-axis. The coordinate system can be zoomed in and out via the mouse wheel or the menu at the bottom right of the screen as required. The visible section of the diagram can be moved around by holding down the right mouse button. Alternatively you can click on the gray bars surrounding the window and they will trun orange. a

  The coordinate system displayed in the window alone does not determine what should then be printed. For this purpose, there is a piece of paper over the coordinate system that defines the print-out area for the printer. This sheet of paper can be moved and positioned anywhere over the coordinate system. To do this, you right-click somewhere in the window after which a context menu is displayed. If you then select 'Paper position', the paper attaches itself to the cursor and can be positioned by a left-click anywhere you want to.

  The required print size of the paper ranging from ANSI A to ANSI F (in the event of selecting metric units) can be selected under 'Settings' . After doing so, the diagram paper is set accordingly in the window. The print-out format can be changed at any time whilst creating the diagram as soon as you notice that the visible area of your distance-time diagram is insufficient. It is also possible to change between portrait and landscape format at any time. In order to be in the right position, the paper can also be moved again.

These 3 paragraphs describe the essentials of the program structure. Just have a try or click on the following image for a short video presentation.

The program has been designed to be result-oriented and reacts almost constantly to your request for a function by mouse. The mouse functions are easy to operate put the scope of functions is at the same time very large. 

Properties have been allocated to the elements in your distance-time diagram which can be changed at any time. For example, if you have drawn a black line, you can change the color (and other properties such as line thickness or line type) at any time. To do this, left-click the element you want to change - the line in this example. The line is then selected, a fact you can see by the orange dots that appear. Then select, for example, the color red from the  color chart and the color of the line will change to red. You can change the Line type and the Line thickness in the same way.  Please also take note of the context menu that is displayed when you do a right-click on the selected element. Depending on the possible Properties of the element, you can enter or change  the coordinates or in the case of vehicles, the license plate or driver here. If the element is a course of vehicle calculation, you can select the calculation dialog again and make changes. Do a right-click to deselect a selected element.

It's also easier for you to just try out these function. It's much easier than reading 'dry' instructions. Or click on the following image for a short video presentation.
