Chapter 3. The User Interface

The KXStitch Main Window

The KXStitch main window consists of an editor window shown on the right in the image above with three dock windows. The dock windows provide a preview of the pattern, the palette of flosses and a history list. If an image is imported, an additional dock window showing a preview of the original image for reference will be shown. Each of these dock windows can be moved around to various edges of the main window, detached from the view or turned off and back on.

The sections are divided by splitters, which can be moved to change the amount of space allocated to any of the sections.

The layout of other elements, menu bar, toolbars and the status bar, is similar to other KDE applications you run.

The status bar at the bottom of the window shows various status messages.
