Provides the following controls and information for the currently selected control page:
The zoom controls allow you to change the appearance of the page elements in the page layout workspace, making them appear larger as you zoom in or smaller as you zoom out.
The purpose of zooming is to make it easier for you to make changes to the control page layout.
The minus icon zooms the workspace out, making the page elements appear smaller.
The plus icon zooms the workspace in, making the page elements appear larger.
The slider allows you to continually adjust the workspace zoom between the minimum and maximum values.
|Fit button||Adjusts the workspace zoom value so that all page elements fit into the current size of the page layout workspace display area. Of course the maximum and minimum zoom values can limit this for very large or very small layouts.|
|Resets the workspace zoom value to its default of 100% and the scroll bar position so that the workspace is at the top-left of the display area.|
Copy / Paste Page Elements
These buttons allow you to copy a set of selected elements on the current page and paste them to the same or a different control page.
note: Copy and paste always maintains previously established links on the copied controls. To copy controls yet create a new set of controls to link to, copy the entire control page using the button at the bottom of the Pages tab in the Control Page Designer palette.
|Align Page Elements||
The alignment buttons allow you to align a set of selected page elements.
The Control Page Designer uses an anchor element as the reference for alignment operations. This is the first element that you select in the set of elements that you wish to align. It's easy to identify the anchor element: it has a darker border color than the other selected elements:
In the following alignment operations, Halogen does not change the position of the anchor element, but moves all of the other selected elements to satisfy the alignment choice. For example, clicking on (align left) for the selection shown above results in the following: All elements are aligned relative to the anchor element, Toggle (7).
note: Select multiple elements by holding down shift while selecting individual elements or by clicking on a blank area of the layout workspace and dragging a selection rectangle around the elements you want to select.
|Make Page Elements Same Width / Height||
These buttons allow you to make a set of selected page elements the same height or width.
As with the alignment operations above, the Control Pages Designer uses the anchor element as the reference, changing all other selected element to the same width or height.
|Space Page Elements Evenly||
These buttons allow you to space a set of selected page elements evenly, either horizontally or vertically.
