Project Mode is a default mode when AVSnap starts up. In this mode a
project is started and initial drawings are created. The page size is
always defaults to the last page size used. The title bar of the program
always displays the mode of operation.
In Library mode user can modify existing or create new library symbols.
This mode is similar to Project mode but provides additional tools for
snap point creation. Library mode is entered by selecting Edit Library or
New Library menu.
Read Only mode
Read only mode is used when a project is Password protected. In this mode
user can review the project but is not able to modify it. In Read Only
mode, pages marked as hidden during the design process are not shown. Also
if the project is marked to expire on certain date, user will not be able
to open it after that date. Pages can be marked not to be protected in
Read Only mode. This allows users to modify unprotected pages and keep the
rest of the pages protected.
This mode allows to present Power Point type presentations. The mode is
entered by using "F5" shortcut and is exited by using "ESC" key. During
the presentation, displayed image can be zoomed in or out using scroll
wheel and can be panned using right mouse button. To advance between
slides several shortcuts are available.
This mode is entered when page format is set to pixels. In this mode user
interface can be designed and executed. Additional tools become available
to create buttons, slides, progress bar, COM ports, TCP/IP ports and
others. All tools are also available to enhance user interface. All Active
symbols can be built using these tools. Programming logic can be
associated with each active symbols to send and receive commands through
RS-232 port or TCP/IP ports.
Control Run mode
This mode is entered by pressing "F9" or selecting option on Page Setup to
start automatically when file is opened. In this mode only Control pages
are available and all user interface is fully operational. This mode
allows to run application in 1:1 pixel resolution or as a movable window.
This mode allows user to communicate with or test AV equipment using
standard terminal interface. In addition a notepad is provided to write
programs that later can be transmitted to the controlled device. The
display can be presented in ASCII or hex format. This mode also interfaces
with the Library symbols and displays information from library symbols in
a separate window. This information may contain programming commands and
additional help text.
Flow Chart mode
This mode allows user to create process Flow Charts. This mode is entered
by selecting Rectangle or Ellipse object and pressing shortcut "S". The
blue snap points on these objects indicate that you are in Flow chart
