Bodhi Freeway 2 Tutorials
Configuring Bodhi Freeway 2 for EzyChart 4 or lower
EzyChart Versions 4 or less work seamlessly with our Bodhi Freeway 2 EzyChart format. If you are using a version of EzyChart between the versions 4.02 to 5.0.106, please refer to these instructions. If you are using EzyChart 6 or above you will need to purchase a BodhiGold subscription as Bodhi Freeway 2 is not compatible with this version.

    These instructions will take you through three processes:
  • Configuring Bodhi Freeway 2 to use the EzyChart data format.
  • Configuring EzyChart to read the Bodhi Freeway 2 EzyChart directories.
  • Opening a chart in EzyChart.
