Looks like you have the demo version. I found it frustrating that I could not print out the path profiles I had created, so I did "print screen", copied the clip-board into a photo editor, reversed the black and white image, and printed it any size I wanted. Hey-presto.
I also figured out the structure of the antenna data files so I could reverse-engineer and pre-save them, then call up those I most frequently used. Although it was skating on the fringes of legality, it made me a great advocate of PL-3 and 4, so I recommended it to whichever company had the enormous funds to buy the full package.

At bottom, life is all about
Sucking in and blowing out.
