Guide to Reading and Using the VFDC Command Lists
ViewsWhen viewing a Command List, you can choose between a number of display formats from the View sub-menu located in the upper right:
|Tabs||Each command category is displayed in a tab, where the commands of the active tab are displayed in the main content. Select a different tab to view the commands for that category. This view is ideal for quickly navigating to specific categories without having to vertically scroll.|
|Flat List||All the commands are displayed in a flat list within their respective category. This view is ideal for printing.|
|Icons||This format displays thumbnail images for each command, grouped (tabbed) within their respective category. This view is ideal for visually navigating, or looking up, a particular move when you don't know the input command.|
SortingClicking on a column heading will sort the display by that column's data. When a Sort is applied on a particular column, an upward (↑) or downward (↓) arrow will be displayed in the column header to indicate the direction of the sort, ascending or descending, respectively. Clicking again will toggle the sort direction.
The default, or natural, sort order is the Command column.
