This menu allows Genstat themes to be selected, saved or loaded. A theme is stored in a .GTH file and controls the look and feel of the client windows. It packages together options that can be modified with the fonts and colours and spreadsheet appearance options. Genstat comes with a set of built-in themes (system themes), but you can modify or create your own themes with these menus. Selecting a theme changes all the look and feel options together to that storted in the theme file, and so are a fast way of switching between different sets of look and feel options.
The Select menu gives a list of the theme files in the system, user or current directories and allows you to choose one of these as the current theme.
The Save menu allows you to save the current look and feel to a theme file in either the system, user or current directory.
The Load menu uses the file open dialog to read in a theme file from any directory, and will offer to store it in either the system or user theme directories.
When selected the command generation mode is enabled. In this mode, menus send generated commands only to the Input Log, and not to Genstat. This allows the menus to be used to generate a Genstat program which may be saved to a file or edited before sending to Genstat using the Run menu.
When selected, the Genstat command language will have the command words and symbols highlighted in different colours. You can set the colours for the different attributes of the command language within the Fonts and Colours section of the Options menu.
