What you First See

What you First See
When you first start Behold, you will be greeted by the screen shown above. This is how Behold will look with no data loaded.
The interface of Behold is designed to meet Windows standards. You should find the layout, placement and use of most of the controls to be similar to other Windows-based programs. This familiarity should make Behold simple and easy for you to use.

The Title Bar

1. The Title Bar
Windows programs have a title bar at the top. Ours shows Behold's cute little sun icon, the program name (Behold) and the name of the file if one is loaded. To the right are standard Windows controls for minimizing, maximizing and closing the window.

The Menu Bar

2. The Menu Bar
The Menu should have entries that are familiar to you, and they lead to the actions of everything you can do in Behold.

Two Rows of Toolbars

3. Two Rows of Toolbars
A lot of the menu items also have toolbar equivalents. Pressing a toolbar icon will do the same thing as its menu item. Not all the menu items have a toolbar icon.


4. TreeView
The TreeView gives an outline of what's in the Everything Report. We'll show you it very soon. The TreeView can be oriented to the left or to the top of the Everything Report, whichever you find more convenient.

The Everything Report

5. The Everything Report
The Everything Report contains, well, everything - once your data is loaded. You can specify what not to include if you don't want everything.

The Status Bar

6. The Status Bar
The Status Bar show messages, tooltips (when you point your mouse over something) as well as some status indicators on the right.
