Editing using the Tree Structure
On each tab, to the left of the screen is a tree structure representing the items entered into your database. Items may be organised into sub-folders, and may be dragged from one sub-folder to another. This allows a very flexible approach to setting up your data. The most useful approach will vary for each user, but in general it is advisable to put each item into a sub-folder with a descriptive name.
To edit data using the tree, right-click and select the desired function from the pop-up menu. Only those functions applicable to the item selected in the tree will be visible on the menu. Below is an example of the pop-up menu that appears when right-clicking a feed folder.
General editing functions
The functions on the top of the menu are general functions that are available on each tab.
- To create a new folder, select a folder in the tree, right-click and select the New Folder item. The new folder will be created as a sub-folder of the selected folder.
- To add a new item (e.g. feed) select a folder, right-click, and select New Feed. The new feed will be added in the selected folder.
- To delete an item (e.g. feed), select the feed, right-click and select Delete Feed.
- To delete a folder, select the folder, right-click and select Delete Folder. Only empty folders may be deleted. Some main folders required by the program cannot be deleted, and if one of these has been selected, this function will not be enabled on the menu.
- To rename an item, click on it once in the tree to select it, and then click on the name a second time. Once the tree is in edit mode, you can enter the new name.
- To make a duplicate of an item (e.g. a feed), select the original item, right-click, and select Duplicate Feed from the menu. A duplicate will be inserted, with the same name as the original with ‘(DUPL)’ added to the end of the name.
The other functions are specific to each tab, and are described in more detail elsewhere for each case.
Many of the functions in the pop-up menu are also available as buttons on the toolbar.
