The menu bar at the left top of the main window provides commands for opening and saving a DigiElch 7.0 Project (*.dep) file (including any number of DigiElch Documents).
•Command: Save As
•Command: RAM-Disk Content
The ribbon bar contains DigiElch's main menu. The associated menu commands and their functionality depend on the document type (electrochemical method) selected in the DigiElch Documents window and on the simulation data (current curve, concentration profiles, surface concentrations) shown in the Client Area of the main window. For this reason only the menus Windows and Help which are independent of this are described here.
•Command: Show Status Bar
•Command: Show DigiElch Documents
•Command: Show Properties
•Command: Help Topics
•Command: View License Status
•Command: Program Update
•Command: Dongle Update
The menu bar at the top of the DigiElch Documents window
provides commands for creating, opening, saving, copying and pasting native DigiElch 7 simulation documents. It also enables the user to load old-style DigiElch 6 documents.
Note that the file format of experimental documents generated with DigiElch 6 is not identical with that generated by DigiElch 7 (despite the same file extension). For this reason, DigiElch 6 files cannot be "opened" with DigiElch 7. Please use the "Load" command instead.
This windows on the left-hand side shows a listing of all simulation documents which have been opened in the actual DigiElch project. This list is empty immediately after starting the program. The number of documents which can be opened and handled in a project is limited only by the RAM configuration of the computer.
After executing the command Add New Document several times the list of simulation documents in the DigiElch Documents window may look as follows:
The name of the active (selected) document is written on a blue background. It is the document to which the menu commands in the Ribbon Bar and the commands Save, Copy and Delete in the Document Menu refer. The simulations or experiments referring to the active document are displayed in the Client Area of the main window.
The default name given to a document can be modified as shown in the following picture.
This window on the right-hand side shows information referring to the active simulation/experiment and/or provides options for customizing colors, printing, data export and screen display. The following options are available immediately after starting DigiElch or after removing all open documents from the list of DigiElch Documents
➢Option: Background Color
➢Option: Connect Potentiostat
➢Option: Profile Colors
Modified Options (except for Option: Connect Potentiostat) will be saved in the Windows Registry and restored when restarting the program.
This area is empty immediately after starting the program. After adding a new DigiElch Document or opening an existing one, this area contains a tabbed window showing several aspects of simulation results
The info shown there depends on the currently activated tabbed Window.
