Using Flags in Plane Plotter

 

This document is intended as a very basic guide, and is complemented by the details given in Tim Quine's PDF document "Flags in PlanePlotter" which can be found in the Plane Plotter Yahoo group Files area.

 

1 - Download a set of flag images


From: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/planeplotter/files/flags/
Or: http://www.homepages.mcb.net/bones/SBS/Utilities/Kinetic_Utilities4_Bitmaps.htm

 

2 - Create a new directory in your Plane Plotter tree

 

For example: C:\Tools\COAA\PlanePlotter\Flags\

 

3 - Download (or create) the file flags.txt which lists the flag image files you have just downloaded

 

The file should be downloaded to your main Plane Plotter directory: C:\Tools\COAA\PlanePlotter\Flags\
This file will contain lines such as:

 

004000 0043FF C:\Program Files\COAA\PlanePlotter\BMPFlags\Zimbabwe.bmp
006000 006FFF C:\Program Files\COAA\PlanePlotter\BMPFlags\Mozambique.bmp

 

4 - Edit the locations

 

However, if you have downloaded the flags.txt file the directory entries will most likely be wrong.  Open the file with Notepad, and use the search and replace function (Ctrl-H).  Using the example above:

 

Find what:       C:\Program Files\COAA\PlanePlotter\BMPFlags\

Replace with:   C:\Tools\COAA\PlanePlotter\Flags\

 

Click:  Replace All

 

5 - Tell Plane Plotter where the flags.txt file lives

 

In Plane Plotter: Options, Flags, Define.  Navigate to the flags.txt you just edited.
