    As you "scan" is probably a picture file of a chart, you should be able to
    change the picture with picture editing software, copy and pasting tiny
    pictures of the chart symbols into it, I suppose.

    There are lots of picture editors that can change a picture at the pixel
    level. Some of them are free.

    I know,
    But the problem is how to past at the exacte location. i mean in degr
    min and sec.
  4. You could use aprogram such as Oziexplorer, calibrate the "chart" you have
    scanned, then use Ozi's functions to add and annotate whatever you want. You
    can then save the chart as a bitmap in Ozi, and add whatever you wish using
    a graphics program.
  5. But how can he then edit the BSB chart?
