Some screen shots

The following graphic shows an image (in its own window) ready to be manipulated by the editor. As you can see there are quite a number of toolbars and menus in the editor.

The Code Editor is used in a number of places throughout the program. In most respects it is similar to the Text Editor. There is one significant difference - the Code Editor applies a style to the formatting of the code it is displaying.

The styles of the Biblio Language and Narrative Language are different. These styles have been chosen to make the code more readable and to provide instant feedback to your data entry.

The following screen shot shows the editor displaying some Biblio Language code. Note the keywords in green, strings in blue, and comments in blue italics. The editor also has a gutter in which line numbers are displayed.

The Configuration Control dialog is where you manage configurations for various screens and other program setups.

The following screenshot shows Configuration Control when called from the Repository screen. Note the Preview of the Repository screen and the nice display of directories available to store or retrieve previously saved configurations.

Configuration Control enables you to manage your configurations using an interface you will be familiar with.

The ability to link one GenBase to another is a powerful feature. 

The following screenshot shows an individual from the Keipert GenBase having the focus. Thus the Keipert GenBase is the Principal GenBase. His father is in the same GenBase. However his paternal grandparent's are from the Jones GenBase. His mother is in the Keipert GenBase. However his maternal grandparent's are from the Morgan GenBase. (The screenshot has been stylized for clarity.)

GENP Pedigree with linked GenBases

Lets take a look at one of the links depicted on the Pedigree View.

The following graphic shows the link between the father Keipert and grandfather Jones. It is an Ancestor Link. (For clarity the graphic shows one link only.)

The following graphic is taken from our Tutorial on how to Link two GenBases. It shows the result of linking Jane Doe in the TestChild GenBase to her father in the TestFather GenBase. Color coding enables you to see at a glance that the two are linked.
