Navigator Entry Details

This window operates interactively with the Navigator window when it is in Setup Mode.

When a Favourite is added to a Topic during Navigator setup, default icons, context menus and help are provided from the program. In this window you can amend these defaults and add extra help which will be seen during normal Navigator operation.

Additional Topics can be added and an Icon set for it. There are a number of icons available, the first 64 of which are stored in the C:\Program Files\RainingData\OS???\icons\newicons.df1 file in your Omnis Studio program installation. If they are missing, that file will be missing from your installation.

Tip TIP: The options available here are essentially a list of menus and submenus that have lines equal to those of the Functions available as shortcuts in the Navigator. However, there are additional menus listed at the bottom that can be applied as context menus, even though their functions are unavailable as shortcuts. These can most usefully be applied to the Topics where, on the Navigator, right-clicking on the Topic icon or helptext will provide the selected Topic context menu.
