Three windows initially appear when starting a scrollable sim.
Messages window , displays messages;
View window , the main window for setting routes (more than one can be opened)
New 'View' windows and the overview window can be opened by clicking Menu-> Show
The term "View" refers to the main board or layout panel, usually affixed to the wall in front of the signaller. A small portion of it may be visible on his workstation, and it is this workstation view that SimSig attempts to emulate.
|Scrolly screen showing Control, Messages, Overview and two View windows|
The keyboard can be used in three main ways:
- Accessing Menus via the Function Keys (F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F10, F11 currently)
- Entering New or changed TDs (Train Descriptions);
- Use of letters as short-cut keys.
