Control Board
This article refers to features that are unavailable in the Lite version of Atlantis Word Processor.

The Control Board is a component of the Atlantis GUI that brings together various tools and commands for document design. 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 its the cross button in the right top corner of the Control Board:

The Control Board's Close button

To open the menu with the Control Board settings, click the corresponding button in the top right corner of the Control Board:

The Control Board's Settings button

Through this menu, you can choose position of the Control Board in the Atlantis main window. The Control Board can be docked either to the left edge of the Atlantis main window:

Left-aligned Control Board

or to the right edge:

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.

Through the settings menu, you can show/hide individual panels of the Control Board:

When the Mouse Hover Previews option is checked in the settings menu:

Mouse Hover Previews

the panels of the Control Board may display previews in the document window when you hover the mouse pointer over certain items of those panels.
