This chapter explains the user interface (UI) of a Pandoras Box Master system. Please follow these links if you are interested in the Client's interface or the chapter "Getting Started".

This chapter is divided into the following sub chapters. Below, you will find general information about the UI:
Startup Dialog: The menu that is displayed when the master software is started
Menu and View Bar: The menus File, Edit, Tabs, Tools and Backup seen in the top and quick access to different views of the interface
Layout: Influence and rearrange the look of the user interface
Tabs Overview: Overview of all available tabs
Keyboard Shortcuts: Lists all shortcuts existing in the Master version of Pandoras Box

To display the UI correctly, please check the following two Windows settings. Firstly, we recommend to activate "ClearType". Secondly, the "DPI scaling" should be set "100%".
For Windows 8, both settings can be found under "Control Panel > (Appearance and Personalization >) Display".
For Windows 10, please go to "Settings > System > Display" and you will find the option "Scale and layout". Set the scaling to "100%", and even if it says so already, click on "Advanced scaling options" and enter "100" into the field which is populated with 100-500% by default. Further down in the "Display" menu you will find the "ClearType Tuner".
Follow the Window instructions to apply the changed settings.

The user interface is designed for real-time playback and operation; therefore all important functions are accessible directly through a tab and view oriented workflow.
Pandoras Box supports a dynamic context-menu structure. A right-click on a particular item opens a context sensitive menu and shows the corresponding commands.

Of course the entire user interface layout can be customized to meet your needs. The tabs size and location can be adjusted either within the main frame or independently on the entire desktop area as a so called breakout pane. You may store several views and recall them with one click at any time during operation.
