I don't know if this will help or not, hopefully it does.

Go to ZBW's website and download the sector file package for VRC. Look in the G90 Sector file, you can see how I added the taxiway designations using VRC's Static Text feature, allowing you to turn them on and off. That's what I'd reccomend doing, as for getting the coordinates, you can use the mouseover feature in VRC, or use the Sector File Editor by the Swiss FIR???? (Not positive on that one, and enter them manually, then transfer that data to show as Static Text, rather than Fixes.

 

If you need more help, PM me.

What I do for this is use the Debug mode in VRC to get the center point (that cross up on the screen) then turn on the mouse coordinates (since that is the format for the coordinates that the sector file uses). Then I just put notepad (or whatever you want to use for your text editor) right at the edge of that middle cross on VRC. So when I take move my mouse across the screen and over the cross, it will stop right at the cross since the mouse goes into notepad. Then just type in the coordinates that VRC shows...works like a charm!

There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

I could hug you.

 

If you hold down the Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys, and then double-click your RIGHT mouse button once you have your cursor at the point you need, VRC copies the current mouse coordinates to the clipboard.

 

Note that you can switch the format of the copied coordinates using the same configuration setting that controls the display of the coordinates on the screen. (Under general settings.)
