5.1.1 Basic elements of the interface




1) Menu bars: Twenty-two different styles are available for customizing the user interface. All menu bars can be placed freely, adjusted in size and supplemented with any buttons.

2) Navigation: The table of contents has been integrated directly into the program interface. This provides a better overview and facilitates the call-up of the item to be edited.

3) Project data: The new project explorer connects all project data with VCmaster. Thereby, e.g. PDF documents, structural analysis or CAD data can be accessed directly from the VCmaster program interface.

4) Task pane: Formatting can be adjusted here, tasks and notes about the project can be managed and information about the document can be edited.

5.1.2 Functions of the project explorer

5.1.3 Functions for formatting

Format settings of headings and the design of the table of contents can be saved in the document. On the one hand, this makes it possible to meet the requirements of different clients and, on the other hand, makes it easier to open on another computer whose global format settings are different.

Import the global format settings that are set on the currently used PC

5.1.4 Tasks

VCmaster can manage tasks. These entries are stored in the document. This allows you to create a document-specific to-do list. It is possible to distinguish between open and completed tasks.
