Before starting to work with neoStampa, learn about neoStampa's interface, its tabs and buttons, and basic navigation.
This is a standard window, with the standard menu bar and buttons to access the main functions.
- At the top there is the standard drop menu bar, selections of printers and schemes, direction action buttons bar and the zoom bar.
- On the right there is the Properties, from where the majority of transformations and configurations will be carried out.
- At the center of the window you can see print document page, where all the files will be placed. The view represents the printing direction from left to right.
- On the left bar are the file action buttons.
- The 'Print' button is to send the file to the printer.
- The Job Queue bar, situated in the lowest part of the window, will show you the states related to the prints you are carrying out, or that which is being processed in the queue.
To access this window, click on View | Workspace from the top context menu. It unfolds all the workspace options that may be visible while you work. If not selected, they will be hidden.
From the Tools options on the upper menu bar, you can access the Language you want to run your program. If you wish to change it, select the new language and restart the program.
Automatic positioning of floating windows
When a floating window moves through the working window, certain marks will appear, enabling the automatic positioning of the floating window. In the middle of the screen appear the position marks. By positioning the cursor of the mouse while pressed, on any of the four keys, the area represented will be highlighted and the floating window will be positioned there.
Floating windows can be configured as to automatically hide when not used, in order to save working space. The icon appearing on the window bar representing a tack, shows whether the window can be hidden or if it is fixed. The following example indicates that the window is a fixed one. If pressed, the tack mark will assume a horizontal position, meaning that the window can be hidden. In the case, for example, of the Job Queue window, when it is hidden a tab appears in the interior part of the working area. Right clicking on the tab you can organize its window position.
The Properties is an options tree which is used to control most of the functions that the program has, along with its configurations. These functions appear and disappear, depending on the objects selected and the possible actions that might be undertaken at each moment. In some of the branches options, the 'Apply' and 'Save' buttons are available so that the parameters introduced are kept for the same configuration. Logically, it is always possible to change the values manually at any time. In the boxes where you can add numeric values you must press enter your keyboard in order to validate them. In other cases, after making changes, these will come into effect by clicking on this button.
Most of the functions are branches of the main section 'Selection'. To hide them, you just have to click on the ' - '.
