A very easy way to change between edit and non-edit modes is to double click on any field label.  In other words, any of the gray headings in a pane can be double-clicked to move the entire pane into Edit more or out of Edit more.  This is much faster than using the Edit button / Done button at the bottom of the panes.  Note that the label name must be double-clicked.  This will not work upon the data or contents of the pane.

Here are some very useful hints that can help you save time in Maxwell.


Contents

Navigate along the rail

Click and drag a title bar in order to move back and forth.

To move the panes back and forth on the Maxwell Rail, simply grab a title bar by clicking and dragging with the mouse cursor. As you drag to the left or the right, the panes will slide back and forth on the rail - allowing you to move back or forward very quickly.

Modes are "sticky"

It is helpful to keep in mind that the editing "mode" for a particular object type (like a Track or a Device) is sticky for other objects of that type. So when editing a track (in edit mode), if you open a second track, it will automatically open into the same mode (editing). This is true for Maxwell browsing within a single browser tab or window.

Double-Click to Edit

A very easy way to change between edit and non-edit modes is to double click on any field label. In other words, any of the gray headings in a pane can be double-clicked to move the entire pane into Edit mode or out of Edit mode. This is much faster than using the Edit button / Done button at the bottom of the panes.

Note that the label name must be double-clicked. This will not work upon the data or contents of the pane.
