View list

The list view shows multiple entries, possibly in a more abbreviated form to ensure all the information fits. You may use the controls at the bottom of the screen to search and sort the contents.

  • View single: one item at a time
  • View list (red arrow): several items at a time (number is user defined)
  • Add entry (green arrows): add an item to the database

The icons highlighted in yellow are for editing, viewing and deleting an item in the database.

View single

Alternatively, you may view only one entry at a time. This might allow you to view more detailed information than the list view.
