Parts ScratchPad Options Menu

Functions that can be applied to the Parts ScratchPad.




Operations on selected

The hierarchical menu that opens from this menu line contains a number of common normal functions that can be operated directly on a selected part in the ScratchPad list. These functions are all available through other standard menus, however typically when using the standard menus you will be required to select the part after the appropriate function window opens, as a separate activity. Using the function from this menu leads to the automatic application of the currently selected part. Privileges to use these functions are inherited from the normal menu function. For example, to operate Stock Control you must have access to Processing — Inventory — Stock Control, if you don’t the function will be disabled. This menu is also available separately on the ScratchPad window menu bar.
