Work Area

X-Pert Graphics interface is very user friendly and it can be used easily in a live environment. The main part of the user interface is the Work area. It shows the objects, their positions, types, and status.

Objects can be moved and resized in this area. If an object is too complex and is not rendered yet, a yellow/black sign, saying [Rendering] will appear on the screen. This sign  will automatically disappear when the rendering is complete.

The little icons in the upper-left corners of the objects show their type, lock status, and transitions. You can enable/disable the icons from Project menu -> Options ->  General -> Show Objects Icons.

The color bar at the bottom of the work area displays the current mode of operation. By default, the preview mode is outlined in blue. You can change this color in the Project menu -> Options ->  General tab.
