<b>General:</b><br/><br/>
<i>Items</i> is a common name for all types of data that can be added to a project: Schematics (SCH), Printed Circuit Boards (PCB), Front Plates (FP) and Programmable Logic Devices (PLD)<br/><br/><br/>


<b>Navigation Menu:</b><br/><br/>
This menu is very self explaining, most navigation is done from it.<br/>Except: view single project, add item, edit project & edit item.<br/><br/><br/>


<b>View:</b><br/><br/>
Projects and items are sorted by date, newest in the top of the list.<br/><br/>When viewing all projects, click on the project description, and it will goto view single project, where it shows all items in that project.<br/>
Or when viewing all items (or all schematics, etc.) click on an item to view all items in that project.

<? echo "$viewall $datatype2[0]"; ?><br/><br/>
<a href="<? echo $path; ?>images/screenshot-2.png" target="screenshot"><img src="<? echo $path; ?>images/screenshot-2.png" width="400" height="360" alt="<? echo "$viewall $datatype2[1]"; ?>" title="<? echo "$viewall $datatype2[1]"; ?>" border="0"/></a><br/>
<? echo "$viewall $datatype2[1]"; ?>
</p><br/><br/>

Whenever a CAD program is entered to an item, a small icon like the one below will appear, and if you hold the mouse over the images, it will show the name of the program used to create ex. the schematic.<br/>At the moment it will show the default schematic CAD program.<br/>(The default names can be set in config.inc.php).<br/>

<img src="<? echo $path; ?>images/2_small.png" width="16" height="16" alt="<? echo "$add $datatype1[2]"; ?>" title="<? echo "$add $datatype1[2]"; ?>"/>
<img src="<? echo $path; ?>images/3_small.png" width="16" height="16" alt="<? echo "$add $datatype1[3]"; ?>" title="<? echo "$add $datatype1[3]"; ?>"/>
<img src="<? echo $path; ?>images/4_small.png" width="16" height="16" alt="<? echo "$add $datatype1[4]"; ?>" title="<? echo "$add $datatype1[4]"; ?>"/>
