2.4 Tab View

 In this tab you can press the following buttons:

 

Icon Label Description

Save Saves the current program plan.

Show grid With this button you can blend in or out the grid in the background of the program plan.

Show slots Deactivate this button if you wish to blend out all slots and edges. By blending out the slots all scheduled events will become more visible in the scheduling view. Activating the slot view shows the scheduled events within the slots.

Show edges Blends in or out all existing edges in the current program plan.

Show events

Blends in or out all scheduled events (program or episode versions) in the program plan to highlight the slot template which lies behind the events.

Highlight slot chain

Shows the entire slot chain of the selected event by highlighting it. All other slots are displayed in grey:

Show schedule selection

With this button you can display or hide the scheduling sections in the currently opened program plan: In order to display these scheduling sections, you have to define these beforehand. This is done in the menu Tools > Edit schedule sections.

Calendar events

These buttons collaborate with the CreateCtrl Websuite. These buttons enable users to show or hide the column Events in the scheduling grid.

By clicking on the arrow  next to a button, you can open a dialog in which you can choose which of the available calendars should be displayed in the column Events. It is possible to select one or several calendars. The three buttons enable you to save three different settings and access them quickly by clicking on the respective button.

Narrow events

This option reduces the events to a smaller size. It makes sense to use this function in order to have a good view on the slot template in the background AND the scheduled events in the foreground.

Show all connectors All connectors (sequel and repeat connectors) within the program plan are displayed.

Show all connectors of slot chain Activate this button to show all connected slots of the currently selected slot - the entire slot chain will be shown.

Show all connectors of slot

Activate this button to only show the connectors that lead to and from the currently selected slot.

Connectors off On activating this button all connectors will be blended out.

Zoom 1, Zoom 2, Zoom 3

These three buttons with the dimension levels 1, 2 and 3 can be preset with three different zoom dimensions. The settings are kept even after terminating the Programmer. To preset the levels please move the controller in the hours- and days bar to a position which suits you in the displayed size of hours and days.

Fit schedule to window This button fits the current program plan window into the main Programmer view. This way all loaded days and hours will be represented in the view, thus showing all elements (a very large slot template of a month will be represented in a very form, a template of several days and hours will fit pretty well).

Center selection

Activating this option makes sense if you work in large program plans (e. g. a schedule of 3-4 weeks). If you zoom in or out of the plan the respectively selected element remains in the focus of the schedule.

Hours: You may adjust the size (zoom) of the current slot template by moving the hour controls to the required level. The control for the hours will reduce or enlarge your view on the vertical axis. You can also zoom in or out the Zoom mode on the tab Planning or by holding the [STRG] key and moving your mouse wheel.

Days: You may adjust the size (zoom) of the current slot template by moving the day controls to the required level. The control for days will reduce or enlarge your view on the horizontal axis. You can also zoom in or out the Zoom mode on the tab Planning or by holding the [STRG] key and moving your mouse wheel.
