The Menus

The DBT Menu Bar follows the Macintosh system conventions and displays a line of main menus, each of which brings up a menu of related functions.

As you progress through the menus, you may notice that some items are inactive and grayed out. This is normal. For example, unless you have a file open, the items in the Edit menu are not available. This is a common feature in many computer applications.

Note: Use of Standard Dialogs

In many instances, Duxbury programs use a standard Macintosh dialog box for such functions as File Open and File Save. The benefit is that these dialogs work in much the same way in the vast majority of applications on your system. You may find that your own system does not display a dialog exactly as shown in these Help topics. The appearance may vary depending on which version of the operating system you are running. Additionally, these dialogs are subject to any customization you, yourself, may have done. Nevertheless, you will typically find these dialogs familiar and easy to understand.
