    Subject: [NavList 22009] T-Plotter update
    There are several changes in this latest version of the T-Plotter Basic model (see attached image):
    1) The two 45-degree lines in the protractor now run from edge to edge in 
    order to facilitate the plotting of the much discussed symmedian point.
    2) The three "10" markings now use a smaller font.
    3) The 1 through 9 tics are still shorter than the others but they are now 
    longer than the "dots" used previously.  This change will ensure that these 
    tics will not fall off the plotting edge.  Also, the tics along the azimuth 
    arm should help keep the plotter parallel to LOPs during the construction of 
    the symmedian point.
    Please visit t-plotter.com for additional info, which includes links to related NavList postings.
