A quick chart consists of the following elements:
- Simple chart;
- Navigation tree with popular clues;
- Kinematic tools
A Simple chart allows visualization of one or more
clues in a chart. The example

|Left mouse button
||Draw a rectangle inside the simple chart to "zoom in".
|Right mouse button
||Reset the "zoom level" to default.
A quick chart Navigation tree contains the following elements:
- Point positions (x, y, z, 3d)
- Point displacements (x, y, z, 3d)
- Point velocities (x, y, z, 3d)
- Point accelerations (x, y, z, 3d)
Select an element of interest to update the simple chart.
The kinematic tools allow you to show data another window:
