Creates a new untitled Chart Collection window
Presents a standard file window that allows you to open an existing AIT Chart Collection or Io Edition chart file.
Closes the topmost chart window or chart collection window. The close command does not affect the floating windows such as the Object Filter, Aspect Filter, or When & Where window
Saves changes to the active chart collection, replacing what was previously in the file.
Creates a new chart collection file representing the current state of the existing chart collection. It doesn't affect the current charts file unless you choose to overwrite the file when specifying the new one.
Presents a standard Page Setup window that permits printer configuration.
Prints the topmost chart or report window.
Quits AIT. If any chart collections are changed, AIT will ask you whether you'd like you save changes before quitting.
Allows you to undo the deletion of charts from a chart collection. It is enabled immediately after deleting a selection in the active chart collection window.
Copies the selection to the clipboard and deletes it from the window. Enabled when an editable text selection is present in the active window.
Copies objects to the clipboard. What is copied varies with the type of window.
In graphical windows, such as chart wheel windows, a Macintosh picture is copied to the clipboard.
In text windows, such as Astrologer's Detail windows, the selected text is copied.
In Chart Editing windows, the text selection in the active text field is copied.
Pastes the text contents of the clipboard into the active window. AIT uses this command only for text editing.
Deletes the current selection without affecting the clipboard.
Selects everything in the object that is currently being edited.
Opens a chart data window, allowing you to specify the data for a new chart.
Opens a Composite Chart window using the currently selected charts. You do not need to create a composite chart to display a 2-person composite. Just select the charts and open a Composite Wheel or Composite Aspectarian from the Charts menu. One would use Create Composite Chart to, for example, view the composite chart as the reference chart in a transit Bi-Wheel.
Opens the chart editing window for the currently selected chart.
Opens the preferences window that enables you to change certain program-wide settings.
Opens a new wheel window using the current system time, date and location. These settings are usually controlled by the MacOS Date & Time control panel.
Opens a Unary aspect grid displaying current planetary aspects.
Opens a Natal Wheel for each chart in the current selection.
Opens a Unary Aspectarian for each chart in the current selection.
Opens a Bi-wheel window for each chart in the current selection. A bi-wheel contains 2 concentric rings of objects.
Opens a Binary Aspectarian for each chart in the current selection.
Opens a Tri-wheel. A tri-wheel contains 3 concentric rings of objects, a reference chart, transits, and progressions.
Opens an Influence Graph for each chart in the current selection.
Opens an Astrologer's Detail report for each chart in the current selection. See an AIT Astrologer's Detail of President Bill Clinton.
Opens an Arabic Parts List for each chart in the current selection.
Opens a Composite Wheel for the current selection. If two charts are selected, this command creates a composite of the two. Otherwise, a composite is opened for each chart in the selection. What good is a composite of only one chart? Not much! Once a Composite is open, you can use Drag & Drop to control the composite.
Opens an aspectarian for the current selection. If two charts are selected, this command creates a composite of the two. Otherwise, a composite is opened for each chart in the selection. What good is a composite of only one chart? Not much! Once a Composite is open, you can use Drag & Drop to control the composite.
Opens a Synastry Bi-wheel for the current selection. If two charts are selected, this command creates one bi-wheel comparing both charts. Otherwise, a synastry wheel is opened for each chart in the selection. As with composite wheels and aspectarians, you can use Drag & Drop to control which charts are used in the synastry window once it's open.
Opens an Aspectarian for the current selection. If two charts are selected, this command creates one synastry window for both charts. Otherwise, a synastry grid is opened for each chart in the selection. As with composite wheels and aspectarians, you can use Drag & Drop to control which charts are used in the synastry window once it's open.
The hub is the center of a wheel chart -- the hole in the doughnut, so to speak. This menu enables you to choose what is displayed there.
Empty -- Leaves the hub blank.
Aspects -- Draws colored aspect lines connecting objects in the innermost ring if AIT determines they are in aspect, and if the aspect is enabled by the Aspect Filter.
Influence -- Draws a graph of the Hard (Red) and Easy (Green) Influence Sensitivity (also called a blob chart).
Overlay enables you to selectively display an overlay showing interconnected aspects between multi-ring charts.
Enables you to choose the method of calculation used to determine at which point in the Ecliptic each house begins.
Enables you to choose whether degrees and minutes are displayed on wheel charts. This affects only display, AIT still uses the same precision internally. Use this command to reduce clutter in charts by hiding excessive detail.
On Bi-wheels, Tri-wheels, or binary aspect grids, enables you to choose which objects are displayed.
Secondary - Solar Arc
Secondary - Naibod Arc
Solar Arc Direction
Controls whether Precession Correction is applied when calculating progression. Precession of the Equinox is the gradual shifting of constellations in relation to the 0 point of Aries.
Switches the primary and secondary charts in a Synastry wheel. In Synastry wheels, the ascendant of the primary chart establishes the char orientation, and cusps of the primary chart establish the houses.
In a Bi-wheel, switches whether the primary or secondary chart is used to calculate the house cusps. This is a separate command from Exchange Charts because, in this case, the primary chart remains unchanged.
Toggles visibility of the panel that enables you to specify the date, time, and location used in the active chart.
Toggles visibility of the panel that controls filtering of objects. Each ring of a wheel chart and each dimension of a grid has its own filter.
Toggles visibility of the panel that controls filtering of aspects. Determines which squares are filled in aspect grids, and which aspects are indicated by lines in a chart overlay or hub.
Toggles visibility of the panel that controls quick navigation between successive lunar and solar returns.
If you own Io Atlas, opens the window that enables the searching of Atlas files.
