Seaclear How do you rotate chart orientation

Just registered and have installed Seaclear software, downloaded NOAA chart and brought it up in the software. The orientation is presented sideways, but I don't see any menu option to 'flip' the chart, to reorient from say landscape to portrat....i.e like you're holding the chart sideways.

Any ideas how to rotate the maps in seaclear?

I've been using SeaClear for a couple months to plot routes back to home port for various boats that I have considered purchasing. I have not run across any command to rotate the chart. Obviously more sophisticated devices allow you to select north up vs. heading up dynamic orientations, but Seaclear is not that sophisticated.

If it is just one (or a few charts) that you want to do this with and you will use it repeatedly, you could load it into image editing software, rotate, and save. Then you would have to load it into MapCal and recalibrate it manually. Although this is a bit tedious, if it's a chart you use heavily it might be worth it.

Thumbs up Thank you seaclear help

Very much appreciate your help, I'll most likely live with it. Also, I just got my GPS hooked up and I'm plotting real-time...very exciting.

thanks again

I picked up a Delorme GPS puck for $18 and it works great with SeaClear (with required USB-serial emulator software from Delorme's website). Although I haven't been able to test it on a boat, I did get to plot my course home from work in the back seat of my car. The the roads were close enough to the Delaware River that they show up on the NOAA charts. It worked fine at 60 mph, so I expect it will work fine at 6 knots.
