2.1.4 Getting Started - Raising Windows and Displaying Text Frames
Raising a window brings it to the front of any overlapping windows so you can view the entire window.

Use the Text and Command Window for entering McIDAS commands, displaying text output, and displaying workstation status information. You can reposition the Text and Command Window to a different location on the display, and you can also resize it.

The Text and Command Window displays keyboard input regardless of whether it or the Image Window is active. Click in either window to make it active.

Use the numeric keypad's plus(+) key to make the Image Window active. To make the Text and Command Window active, press a numeric keypad number. The number you press determines which text frame is displayed in the window. On Sun workstations only, you may have to first enable the Num Lock or press the Alt Graph key and a numeric keypad number at the same time.

  1. To raise the Text and Command Window and display text frame 1,

    Press: 1

  2. To raise the Image Window,

    Press: +

  3. Change the Text and Command Window back to text frame 0.

    Press: 0
