Default taking notes on marks on the nav chart?

I think I saw something about being able to make a note on the chart using the "mark" pencil. But never figured out how to do it. For a long while I just dismissed it as a feature that never actually got implemented. But tonight I loaded a saved campaign game and saw that one of the marks I had made previously on the navigation chart had a random string of characters under it (rather than the usual "Mark" #). As if maybe I thought I was typing to my notepad (I play in windowed mode and make contact notes in a notepad), but the focus was on the game.

So is there a way to put notes to the marks we make on the nav chart?

Not that I'm aware of. The closest I get to making notes is "X" marks the spot, or "O" if using the compass tool, ---- with the ruler, etc... sigh. Loading a saved game can cause "glitches" in the display and sound as, and immediately after, it loads.

I've always thought that would be nice. especially when I'm trying to figure
out the speed of a distant contact : note the time of the mark.
I just use a note pad (made of paper) .

No way to make "notes" on the chart. I do similar to you with paper, if I'm not lazy about it...

... and PENCIL... that a person has to sharpen... I sometimes use my pocket knife to sharpen my pencil to write in SCRIPT - long-hand we used to call it in school...

As a side-note, I know how to tie my shoes, but I do have a couple of velcro pairs also, for the old-man fickle flying fingers of flabbiness...
