How to enter waypoint defined by the intersection of two radials?

I apologize if I missed this in the User Guide, but I need to enter a waypoint in a flight plan where the waypoint is the intersection of two VOR radials and I don't see how to do that.  I see how to enter waypoints as a radial and distance from a VOR, but not the intersection of two radials.  How can I do that?  Barry

Re: How to enter waypoint defined by the intersection of two radials?

Any intersection of radials that matter much are normally an intersection or waypoint noted on the IFR map.
These are in the database.

Just add the identifier to the flight plan.

Thanks for responding rotrhead.  I agree that most clearances involve published waypoints, but they can and do sometimes include routings defined by VOR radials which intersect at locations without a waypoint.  How would you input that routing into Naviator?

One way to do that is to plan the route close to where you want the waypoint. Then use the rubber band to move the route to the point you want. It will create a waypoint. I believe you could name that waypoint.

You can also just long press anywhere on the map to add a waypoint
