FSI Viewer – Help

Navigation

  • FSI Viewer is navigated by using the menu bar (below the image) and the mouse directly on the image. For example, you can directly select a segment of the image that you want to enlarge. The mouse functions are determined by the 4 buttons on the menu bar (magnify, move etc.). The example on the right shows the button “magnify”.

    The small navigator window (bottom-right) displays the position of the current selected segment.

    In versions other than the standard version these buttons may vary in form, color and even in the general function. For adaptation please refer to the corresponding documentation.
