The Libraries List

The Libraries list can be viewed as larger or smaller tiles or as icons. The view to be used can be selected in the Action Menu.

The Libraries in the current library group is displayed. The Group can be selected by panning left or right or by selecting the group from the Group/Main Menu.

Library Tiles & Icons

Touching an icon or tile opens the library. Each tile has a Library Menu and possibly also an Add Entry Menu.

Icons or tiles may be moved (reordered) within the group by dragging.

The Action Menu

Touching the 3-dot icon in the upper-right corner of the screen opens the Action Menu, allowing the user to perform one of the following actions:

The Group/Main Menu

Touching the 3-line menu in the upper-left corner of the screen opens the Group/Main Menu, which allows selection of the Group to be displayed. The developer occasionally refers to this menu as the slide menu. Some people like to call the 3-line icon a hamburger icon and thus the menu as the hamburger menu.
