Indicator Columns

An element specification can have any of a number of resources associated with it. You can obtain a quick indication that resources exist for the element by displaying the corresponding column (selected from the Field Chooser dialog) on the Specification Manager; if the resource exists, an icon displays in the column against that element. When an indicator is displayed, you can double-click on the icon to immediately access the record or the first in a set of records for the element, in the corresponding window. You can use these windows to edit, delete or (where appropriate) add to the records against the element.
