Navigation


viewer screenshot


The Imageware Viewer is navigated by using the menu bar and the mouse directly on the image. For example, you can directly select a segment of the image that you want to enlarge. The mouse functions are determined by the 4 buttons on the menu bar (magnify, move etc). The example on the left shows the button “magnify“.

The small survey window (above left) displays the position of the current selected segment.

In versions other than the standard version these buttons may vary in form, color and even in the general function. For adaptation please refer to the corresponding documentation.
