The Menu Bar

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

When the active module is changed, the menus change to a set of menus associated with the selected module. The first three menus (File, Edit, Display) are the same for every module, as are the last two (Window, Help). The remaining menus are dependent on the selected module.

If a menu item is dimmed, then it can not be used until the proper conditions exist. Typically this means the appropriate data has not yet been created or selected.

Some menus for creation and manipulation of data objects appear when right-clicking in the Project Explorer or when right-clicking on feature objects.
