Browser pop-up menu

Most important operations on element browsers are available from the browser pop-up menu. To open this menu press Alt+F10 or right-click over the browser window.

The browser pop-up menu includes the following options:

  • View - show the currently selected element in the element window
  • Search
    • Find - find the first element in the browser with a title containing a given string. The search begins starting with the element that follows the currently selected element
    • Find next - repeat the last search operation with Search : Find (e.g. to search for the next element with the same string)
  • Subset - subset operations (read also: Using subsets)
    • Select element - mark the currently selected element as part of a subset. Marking is most easily done with Ins. Marked elements have a plus sign in the leftmost column. You can later process marked element with other options such as Subset : Save selection or Child : Selected
    • Select all elements - mark all elements in the browser as a subset
    • Save selection - save all marked elements in a subset file (see Select element above)
    • Save all - save the whole contents of the browser in a subset file
    • Select browser range - mark all elements in the rows numbered in a given range. For example, if you input the range 10-20, the elements in the rows numbered from 10 to 20 will be marked as part of the subset
    • Select element range - mark all elements with numbers falling in a given range. Element number expresses the elements physical place in a given collection and is used as a unique element identifier. Element number is displayed in the column ElNo
    • Unselect browser range - unmark all elements in the rows numbered in a given range
    • Unselect element range - mark all elements with numbers falling in a given range
    • Unselect-Subtract - unmark all elements that belong to a given subset file
    • Unselect-Intersect - unmark all elements that cannot be found in a given subset file
    • Add subset file - create a new browser with the sum of the current browser and a subset file
    • Subtract subset file - create a new browser with the difference of the current browser and a subset file (i.e. containing all elements that belong to the browser and do not belong to the subset file)
    • Intersect subset file - create a new browser with the intersection of the current browser and a subset file (i.e. containing all elements that belong to both the browser and the subset file)
    • Delete - delete a subset file
  • Child - open a child browser with a subset of elements stored in the currently used browser
    • Memorized - open a child browser with all memorized elements contained in the current browser
    • Pending - open a child browser with all pending elements contained in the current browser
    • Dismissed - open a child browser with all dismissed elements contained in the current browser
    • Selected - open a child browser with all elements that are marked with a plus in the leftmost column (see Subset : Select element above)
  • Sort - sort the browser by a given column
    • By title - sort the browser alphabetically by the element title
    • By element number - sort the browser by the element number (column ElNo)
    • By ordinal number - sort the browser by ordinal numbers
    • By repetitions - sort the browser by the number of repetitions afforded each element (i.e. the number of times each element was repeated)
    • By forgetting - sort the browser by the number of memory lapses, i.e. the number of times each element was forgotten
    • By last repetition - sort the browser by the date of the last repetition
    • By next repetition - sort the browser by the date of the next repetition
  • Random
    • Random review - jump to a randomly picked element in the browser. This option is useful in quickly reviewing the material contained in the browser
    • Random test - start random test on the contents of the browser. All elements will be repeated in the standard way but the repetitions will have no effect on the learning process
    • Random learning - start random learning the elements in the browser. Memorized elements will not be affected but the pending elements will be memorized
  • Process all - process all elements contained in the browser, e.g. memorized all pending elements, move the elements in the knowledge tree, etc.
    • Remember - memorize all elements in the browser that have not yet been memorized
    • Forget - remove all memorized elements from the learning process and put them at the end of the pending queue
    • Dismiss - dismiss all elements in the browser
    • Add to drill - add all elements in the browser to the final drill queue
    • Move to branch - move the elements in the browser to a selected branch in the knowledge tree
    • Move to category - move the elements in the browser to a selected contents category
  • Export
    • Export as text - export all elements in the browser as a text file. Such a file can later be imported to another collection
    • Transfer - transfer all elements in the browser to another collection
  • Tools
    • Save pending - save elements from the browser in the pending queue (this option is only active if you are using a browser with the contents of the pending queue). You can use this option to sort the pending queue by ordinal numbers, by title, etc. For example, to sort the pending queue by the element number: (1) choose View : Pending, (2) click the column ElNo, and (3) choose Tools : Save pending on the browser menu
  • Close - close the browser
