MicroChart 2000 Released!

MicroChart 2000 includes several new features and improvements
along with some bug fixes and other cosmetic changes.


MicroChart was originally developed as a DOS graphics program in 1983 during my teaching assignment at the University of Hawaii and from the very beginning has been used to design and chart the halftime shows of the University of Hawaii "Rainbow" Marching Band and the Hula Bowl All-Star Halftime Pageantry. Since most other early marching band drill design programs were for the Apple™ (then IIe) computers, MicroChart was one of the first program of it's kind for the DOS/IBM PC platform. A Windows™ version was released in 1991 which included several major enhancements that took advantage of the new graphical environment.

Now in it's fourth major revision for Windows 9x/ME/2000 and XP, MicroChart 2000 supports the newer functions, controls, and interface improvements of these environments. Some of the features of MicroChart 2000 include:

  • Drawing Tools: point, line, block, parallelogram, arc, circle, freeform curves
  • Edit Functions: copy, delete, move, scale, rotate, mirror, join, center, alter symbol & color, and zoom
  • Multiple zoom magnifications for precision placement of objects
  • True perspective view for press or visitors with adjustable height & distance settings
  • Selectable colors for positions and grid
  • Multiple document support - load and work with several drills at a time
  • Floatable tool bar and edit bar
  • Support for high school, NCAA, and professional league hash and yardline markings
  • Batch printing of chart files
  • Support for most Windows compatible printer including laser and color inkjets
  • Selectable printer fonts and font attributes
  • Online help via Windows help file
  • Support for the Windows registry
