Can someone explain to me in graphic which is which distance from who in the F-PLN page? Given that there's no PROG page to directly enter specific fixes to calculate distance, I reckon this is the only way to go. So. How do you calculate the distance in between the fixes referring to the F-PLN page for the TOD. I know the rule of 3, Just understanding or interpreting the numbers on the MCDU is confusing, distance wise.

Since they are usually shown in the following illustration:

3nm
Fix A
5nm
Fix B
13nm
Fix C
18nm

Does this mean these are the distances apart from each other? Like, 5nm from fix A to B, and so on.. I checked the charts and it shows pretty much the same, but looking only on the MCDU is confusing to me.

Thank you in advance and thanks for your patience.
