Target Confirmation charts are a functionality within APT that provides users with a convenient way to verify that their target coordinates are going to position the telescope in the expected place. This functionality works exactly the same between the HST and JWST branches of APT. For each fixed target, a target confirmation chart appears in a separate pop up window from within APT.  If you have entered proper motion information into the APT target GUI for a target, this gets applied to the position shown on the PDF chart.   If desired, they can be saved as PDF files into your local directory space for future reference. Figure 1 shows an example.
