Inserting a distance value on a tray element that is not drawn to scale

If you want to update a profile view tray element with distance values, Distance Value Style must have been chosen in the profile settings. If the profile view was not created with distance values, you will need to delete the existing profile view and create a new one with the distance values.

  2. On the main menu, click View > Layout View.
  3. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Aeronautical Terminal Procedures.
  4. Click the Edit Instrument Approach Profile button Edit Instrument Approach Profile on the Aeronautical Terminal Procedures toolbar.
  5. Click a vertical line that is not associated with a distance tray value.

    The Add/Split Tray dialog box appears.

    Arrows are drawn on either side of the newly added distance value if the tray value box is long enough. You can edit the size of the tray boxes by selecting the vertical line in the profile view (if the tray is not drawn to scale) using the Edit Instrument Approach Profile tool and dragging the vertical line to the left or right.
