Chapter 4: THE DISPLAY


4-1: Introduction to the Display


Nearly every aspect of the display can be controlled. There are commands to manipulate the editing windows, menus, colors, and more.

One useful feature of the display is that drawing can be aborted by typing the interrupt key (Ctrl-C on UNIX, CMDC on Windows, CMD-. on the Macintosh; see Section 1-9). This helps if a long and complex display operation begins that need not finish.

Electric is able to display multiple editing windows, and these windows can be subdivided repeatedly.

If a window appears incorrect, you can redraw it with the Redisplay Window command of the Windows menu.
