Overview of the User Interface

DAISY Pipeline has a menu bar at top. The File, Edit, View and Help drop down menus can be accessed with the mouse and keyboard like other applications.

Below the menu is the tab control area. By default there is only one tab and a “+” shape button for adding more tabs. New conversion jobs can be created in different tabs and can be run in parallel.

In each tab there is a “Select a script” drop down list. When no script is selected, the rest of the DAISY Pipeline window is blank.
