Menu Commands and Toolbars
Database menu
Export Selected Tables
Creates and exports a ExtendSim Database text file containing only the selected tables. Use this command instead of the Export Database command, when you want a file that contains only a portion of the database. To enable the command, select one or more tables in a database window.
Rename Table
Renames the selected table in an ExtendSim Database. A dialog opens with a list of the data- base’s existing tables and a field for entering the new name. To enable this command, bring a database window to the front, as described under Database menu, above. Then select a table in the database window.
Edit Table Properties
Opens a dialog to edit table properties such as the table name, whether it should be initialzed, and its tooltips. This command works the same as right- clicking a database table and selecting Edit Table Properties.
New Tab
Places a tab in the database window, to the right of any previous tabs. This is equivalent to double- clicking the blank area to the right of existing tabs. To enable this command, bring a database window to the front, as described under Database menu, above.
Rename or Delete Database Tab
Allows you to rename or delete the tab that is in the active database window. This is equivalent to double-clicking the tab to rename or delete it. To enable this command, bring a database window to the front, as described under Database menu, above. Then select a tab to bring it to the front.
Clone Selected Tables to Tab
Clones the table or tables to another tab. Select one or more tables, then give the command. In the dialog, select the tab to copy the table to. (Or right-click a selected table and choose “clone table to tab”.) To enable this command, bring a database window to the front, as described under Database menu, above. Then bring a tab to the front and select the tables to clone using the Block/Text layer tool.
☞ A cloned table will behave exactly like the original table and will change when the original table changes. Likewise, changes made to the cloned table will be reflected in the original table. Cloning is different than copying and pasting a table using the Edit menu. Tables that are copied and pasted are neither linked to each other nor to the original table.
