Tailor it to your needs and specifications
Just bought AC? You can use AC immediately – the default settings should suffice until you get familiar with the app. You can look at changing things to your preference anytime.
Note that all settings are global and affect all charts, except those settings when creating a new chart or editing a new chart.
For instance if you decide to to display Chiron for the currently displayed chart every displayed chart will now display Chiron. If you decide to change an orb setting this will affect every displayed chart. Same with chart colours and themes and so on.
A new or edited chart has its own distinct settings. For example a chart could be Natal, with a Placidus house system. Another chart could be Horary with a Regio house system. Of course time of birth and country of birth are all unique to that chart.
All settings are saved so that closing down AC, or switching off you iPad you will not lose any settings. On relaunch of AC all settings are restored. This is also the case when upgrading AC from the App Store, no settings are lost.
One thing that you may like to change asap is to include more fixed stars. For instance Scheat is not included in the default listing.
