Pathagoras maintains a Table which maintains and displays the association of each registered prefix with a specific folder or glossary.
The registered prefixes also allows the user to quickly and effortlessly locate any prefix/suffix named term with a simple press of <Alt-G>. Such 'mouseless assembly' is a hallmark feature of Pathagoras.
To register a prefix and associate it with a specific folder:
1.Display the Utilities/Settings screen and click the All Settings button.
2.Click the Prefix Tables tab.
This is the initial view of the Prefix Table screen:
From this screen, you can:
•drop down the list (1, above) to view all currently assigned prefix-to-folder (or prefix-to-glossary) designations and make changes as appropriate, or
•type into the Prefix box (2, above) the 2 to 4 characters of the prefix. To pair up a folder or glossary to the prefix, click the Navigate to Source button (3, above). Follow the prompts.
If a document bearing the desired prefix happens to be 'on-screen' (and you can easily make that 'happen', an additional button called 'Use folder of underlying document' will appear. Click it, if appropriate, to avoid having to navigate.
The Table is automatically augmented or modified:
1.when you create a new book and choose to name the terms using the prefix/suffix style; or
2.when you assign a prefix to a book via the Document Assembly Setting screen ('Prefix' tab) and press the Assign Prefix button.
When a prefix has been registered, if you type that prefix onto an editing screen and press <Alt-G>, the book assigned to that prefix will be displayed.
