Control Board

The Control Board is a special component of the Atlantis GUI that brings together various tools and commands required to design both simple and complex documents. It is a set of panels each of which deals with one specific characteristic of the active document.

You can show/hide the Control Board in multiple ways: using the "View | Control Board | Show" menu command, the corresponding hot key (F6), or the Button image toolbar button. You can also hide the Control Board by clicking the cross button in the right top corner of the Control Board:

The Control Board's Close button

The Control Board can be docked either to the left edge of the Atlantis main window (when the "View | Control Board | Position | Left" menu command is checked):

Left-aligned Control Board

or to the right edge of the Atlantis main window (when the "View | Control Board | Position | Right" menu command is checked):

Right-aligned Control Board

You can change the Control Board width by grabbing its right or left edge (depending on to which edge of the main window the Control Board is docked) with the mouse and dragging until you get the desired size.

To activate individual panels of the Control Board, use the toolbar at the top of the Control Board:
