Quick start

Lets have a look into Solar Fire Gold 7.06 and analyze how much user effort the most frequent and typical operations require.

When the program starts we see only empty windows.

To get a chart wheel user must
  1. Click an Open button in main window toolbar
  2. Select an event
  3. Press Chart Database Open button. By the way, a Chart Database seems not a correct name for the window. Chart means a graphic representation of some astrological event like person birth. For example, natal or progressive chart. If we are editing Muhammad Ali's birth date or place what 'chart' we are editing? None. We are working with event, not a chart.

Finally, to get a get only a preview of previously calculated chart SF user must execute 3 actions.

To pull out a full-size wheel user have to do another 2 clicks
  • Go to View menu item
  • Select Current chart

To see a previously viewed full-size wheel user must repeat 3+2=5 (five) actions.

When AstroElite starts, the program automatically restores your working environment 100%, including main window size and screen position. No any user actions required.
