Importing Charts

Use the Charts/Import... menu To Import existing charts from other astrological programs.

[AstroApp Financial Gold Edition] The Charts/Import... menu will only import regular charts (natal, mundane, and so on). Importing First Trade charts is done differently. Any chart imported via the Charts/Import... utility will be treated as a regular chart and not as a financial / company chart.
