Simon User Guide

Edit Menu

This is a standard Edit menu, with the usual Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy, etc commands. In addition, it contains some commands for the Monitor, Source and Preview windows:

Select None: This function is similar to the standard Select All command, but does the reverse: all selected lines are de-selected. Very useful if some tests are selected, to see the changes etc for all tests.

Copy to Test: This function copies the text selected in the header or source text areas to the relevant portion of the Smart Change Detection in the current New/Edit Test window, if any. If the header or source has a current selection, it is copied to the Start Text for the test if that field is blank or both the Start and End have a value. Otherwise, it is copied to the End field. You can of course use the normal Copy and Paste commands, or drag-and-drop, to do this too.

Mark as Unviewed: This command will add a yellow indicator icon to the first column in the Monitor window for each selected line, or for all lines if none are selected. If any line already has an indicator, the item changes to Mark as Viewed, which will remove the indicators. There is also a toolbar button to perform this action.

Back: This function reloads the previously viewed page in the Source or Preview windows. The page is reloaded from the cache, rather than being fetched from the server, for a faster response.

Forward: If you have used the Back command, this function will return you to the subsequent page, as you might expect. Again, it is loaded from the cache.

Find: This is a standard find sub-menu, with commands to help find text. Useful in the Source or Preview windows.
