The View menu is
The menu choices are grouped into the following groups:
These menu items allow the user to open multiple views of the same document.
New View... — The New View... menu item opens up a new window with the current workbook visible. and where both windows are open to the same section of the workbook. If the user starts editing a different part of the sheet in one view, the other view moves automatically to that portion of the worksheet. Similarly, if the user changes to a different worksheet in one view, the other view changes also.
Freeze Panes — The Freeze Panes menu item is used to freeze the top-most and leftmost visible portion of the worksheet. This is useful to be able to line up portions of the worksheet which are not usually together. For instance, if a user had a very large table with the titles of each column of data on row 12, the user could select row 13 and select this menu item. If the user scrolled through each data row, the data would line up underneath each header.
There are 3 ways to determine which rows and/or columns should be frozen.
In all cases, the region of the worksheet above or to the right of the currently visible region will become inaccessible until the view is unfrozen.
Windows — The Windows menu item provides access to a sub-menu which lists all of the windows which are currently open. This provides an easy way to jump between all the different instances and views of Gnumeric documents.
These menu items alter the display of the current view.
Toolbars — The Toolbars menu item provides a submenu which lists each Gnumeric toolbar. The toolbars in this submenu which have a check mark in front of their name will be shown. The display status of each toolbar can be changed by selecting the menu item with that toolbar's name.
View Statusbar — The View Statusbar menu item determines whether to display the status bar and information area at the bottom of each worksheets. Selecting the menu item toggles the check mark in front. When this menu item has the checkmark, Gnumeric will display the statusbar.
Full Screen — The Full Screen menu item changes the display of Gnumeric from a window based display to a display which occupies the whole screen. In full screen mode, the window borders will not be displayed nor will the toolbars. The key F11 toggles between full screen and regular display mode. When this menu item has the checkmark, Gnumeric is in Full Screen mode.
View Properties... — The View Properties... menu item opens the View Properties dialog.
The check boxes on the Cell Markers tab shown in Figure 4-11 determine whether cells are shown with indicators that they contain formulae and/or that they have clipped content.
The check boxes on the Widget tab shown in Figure 4-10 determine whether the notebook tabs, the horizontal scrollbar and/or the vertical scrollbars are shown in this view.
Zoom... — The Zoom menu item opens a dialog which allows the user to set the magnification of all worksheets in the current workbook. This item is separated from the previous ones since it always acts on all views of a worksheet.
