How do I clear the selection cross hairs?

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

Once you have selected a point in VStar, is there a way to de-select the point so that no cross hatch appears in the light curve plot? I don't see any way to get rid of it, except replot the data and don't click on anything.

Perhaps a "clear selection" button would be useful?

Hi Mike

Yes, it certainly is possible. If you go to the View menu and select the Plot Control item (or toolbar equivalent), you'll see that the dialog:

has a "Cross Hairs?" checkbox at bottom left inside the "Show" section. Un-check that to remove/add the cross hairs.
