I cannot reproduce the problem.

Can you zip/tar your file ~/.skychart/skychart.ini and upload here.

Please find attached the skychart.ini.
I can also make a short video screencast to demonstrate the problem.

Thank you for the file.

There is wrong options for the projection in your config file, specifically a null value for EquinoxChart, this is something that must not arise.
I do more search to change the program to prevent this and fix the config in this case.

But for now you can fix it the following way:
- start the program, stay in Eq coordinates
- open the menu Setup/Chart,coordinates
- for "type of coordinates", click "Mean J2000", then immediately click back "Apparent..."
- click OK and save the configuration.

This change must fix the problem automatically when loading a wrong config file:
