Example of menus in SMS

Menu commands in SMS are accessed through one of two ways. The first is through the menus located in menu bar. The second is by clicking the right mouse button to bring up a right-click menu.

Menu Bar

Many commands in SMS are accessed through pull down menus located in the menu bar. Each menu can be accessed either with the mouse or by pressing the ALT key and the corresponding letter underlined in the menu title. Once a menu is visible the individual commands can be selected with the mouse or by again pressing the corresponding letter underlined in the menu command.

The menus available at any time are dependent on the active module and current numerical model. The standard menus, such as the File, Edit, and Display menus, are always available. The remaining menus change with the module and the model. This is to partition the available commands into usable groups and avoid unnecessary complexity.

Right-Click Menus

Many commands in SMS are accessed through mouse right-click menus. The mouse right-click menu available at any time is dependent on the active module, current numerical model, active tool, and where the right-click is performed.
