Accelerator keys

An accelerator key is a key on your keyboard that you can press to quickly access a menu or function.
This can be used for often used functions, such as start or stop recording a sounding.

When using an accelerator key, you do not longer have to use the mouse while trying to navigate your vessel at the same time.


Default accelerator keys

A couple of accelerator keys are already defined after installation of the software.
These keys provide direct access to the functions in the "Survey" menu as shown below:
