Main menu

Parent Previous Next

The application's main menu, located at the top of the screen above the status bar and surgery schedule, is the primary way of invoking the majority of the program's features.  A number of menu items can be invoked via keyboard shortcuts.  Menu items with keyboard shortcuts display the shortcut key to the right of the name of the menu item.

A description of each of the items in the main menu follows.


Select Date (F2) - Select a date for which to display surgery cases.

Refresh (F5) - Refresh the display of surgery cases.

Print Preview - Display a preview of the surgery cases before printing.

Print - Send the displayed surgery cases to a printer.

Save... - Save the surgery schedule data to a text file.

Copy to Clipboard - Copy the surgery schedule data as tab-delimited plain-text data to the system clipboard.

Copy to Clipboard as HTML - Copy the surgery schedule data as HTML, preserving formatting, to the system clipboard.

Open New Window - Invokes a second application in which surgery cases, perhaps for another date, are displayed.

Exit - Exit the application


Auto-Fit Columns (F9) - Compresses all columns so that they completely fit within the display, so that horizontal scroll bars are not needed.

Settings - Invokes the Settings dialog which allows for customization of the application.


Help Topics (F1) - Invokes online help for the application.
