The menu and tool bars

Figure 2-2. Menu and tool bars

The menu and tool bars are common to other editors. From the menu, you can perform most cssed tasks; you will use the tool bars to perform the most common ones. All menus have got menu accelerator keys, but not all items in menus.

Note

Mac OS X users: the menu accelerator keys are not available on your system.

Here we will inspect the menus, and let you know the possible equivalence in the tool bars.

The Panels menu

From there you can show/hide the side and footer panels.

Note

Observe that the icons which have only a blank background matches the hide action, whereas the icons with a blue rectangle matches the show action. Similarly, horizontal arrows represent the side panel, while vertical arrows represent the footer panel.

The Help menu

The About item in this menu leads to a four tabs window with information about cssed: author, developers, translators and their details (in translated version), and a dedicace for this release.

With those icons you access quickly any temporary bookmark you have previously defined just by clicking in the margin in front of the line you wanted to bookmark.
