1.6 Tool Tips and Status bar

Wherever it is appropriate in KISSsoft Tool Tips have been added which provide concise informative messages describing the program elements. Tool Tips appear automatically if the mouse is moved slowly over the program element.

More detailed information appears in the status bar for all Actions in the menus as soon as the mouse is moved over the menu item. In the right region of the status bar the current status of the calculation is shown. The second region from the right shows CONSISTENT when the results are current and INCONSISTENT when the calculation should be carried out again after one or more data edits (see 4.3). The area Project Members at the far right of the Status bar indicates whether the current calculation file belongs to the current working project (see 3).
