Toolbar Icons

I can be contacted at E-mail address:-         



    The program toolbar icons take this form:


| ----- 1 ------ | ------ 2 ----- | ---- 3 ----  | 4 | -- 5 --- | ------- 6 ----- | --------- 7 --------- | 8 |-- 9 -------- |


    They are arranged into nine regions, each with a specific focus. A Left click on any button activates the command.


    A Right click on the Toolbar will open the following pane where Icons for display may be selected to give a fully personalised set to meet your operational requirements.

    The Green background shows the the data is available, and is being used in propagation calculations. A click on the button changes the background colour to Red, disabling the use of the data in the calculations.

    Where the data file is not available on the computer only the Red background will be displayed.
