Registry toolbar

In the registry window, the toolbar provides a quick access to most often used operations.

Here is the use of the individual buttons (compare with the picture below):

  • Menu button - open pop-up menu otherwise available with right-click over the registry window
  • List button - list users of the currently selected registry member in the user list box (bottom-right)
  • Goto button - go to the first user of the currently selected registry member
  • View button - display in the element window the first user of the currently selected registry member 
  • Find button - find members containing a given string in their name (search only in the current registry subset). For example, to search for all pictures with the word "virus" in their name, use Search : Images, click Find button, type virus, and press Enter
  • Replace button - replace strings in the current registry subset
  • Superset button - move to the previous subset (if any). For example, after search a registry with Ctrl+S, your results are displayed as a new registry subset. You can move back to the parent subset by clicking Superset button or pressing Ctrl+Alt+Left
  • Subset button - move to the next subset (if any). For example, after search a registry with Ctrl+S, your results are displayed as a new registry subset. You can search again to create yet another subset (AND-search). You can move between subset by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Left and Ctrl+Alt+Right
  • Random jump button - randomly select a new registry member (e.g. for the purpose of a quick registry review)
  • Font button (only in the font registry) - change the font associated with the currently selected registry member 
  • Path button - display the path to the selected registry object file(s) (e.g. image file). Show the availability of the file in the primary and secondary storage (if these two differ), linked file path (if any), and file sizes
  • Transcription button - provide a character map for editing phonetic transcription registry (only in phonetic transcription registry)
  • Browse button - put all elements using the current selected subset of registry members into an element browser (note that the button Browse puts only the users of the selected member in the browser while Browse button on the toolbar puts the users of all members in the current subset in the browser)
  • Import button - import files directly into the registry
  • Stretch button (only in the image registry) - stretch images to fill out the display panel
  • Export button - export the currently selected member (if relevant)
