Note that you must click elsewhere on the screen before the Navigator window will disappear.

    5758The ''Main scree''n shows the forms where Ecopath, Ecosim and Ecospace model inputs are entered and edited. Model results are also displayed here. Note that nothing is displayed in the Main screen until a menu item is selected on the ''Navigator window''. Once an item has been selected (e.g., ''Basic input'' table) it is added as a tab to the ''Tabs bar'' so that you can easily return to it after other items have been displayed.

    6667Any form can be dragged and dropped to a floating window or docked to a new position by dragging it by the tab whilst holding down the left mouse button (see ''General features of the Graphic User Interface'' above).

Remarks can be viewed later by holding your mouse over commented cells (marked with a flag in the corner) or by selecting the commented cell and clicking on the remarks button. The ''Remarks panel'' can be switched to permanently visible mode by clicking on the horizontal push pin icon (../Resources/Images/0300004D.png) whilst the window is open.

    7679Three types of message are displayed in the ''Status panel''*: 
    7780 
    78   Information messages [../Resources/Images/03000051.png ../Resources/Images/03000051.png]. Information messages provide feedback on regular events in EwE. Information events are confirmations of successful actions. Examples are opening the model; successful edits; and successful balancing (i.e., [[Balancing a model.htm|parameterization]]) of the model.Warning messages [../Resources/Images/03000052.png ../Resources/Images/03000052.png]. Warnings occur when EwE was not able to complete an action and requires the user to fix a problem, usually with the input data. For example, one of the most important of these is when parameterization fails (i..e., the model fails to balance). When this occurs, you will get the message “Your model is NOT balanced! Computed Ecotrophic Efficiencies (EE) invalid for one or more group(s).”  Clicking on the “+” icon next to this message expands the message to show which groups are causing the problem.Critical messages [../Resources/Images/03000053.png ../Resources/Images/03000053.png]. Critical messages are very rare and should not be encountered during normal use of the software. Users encountering critical messages should try closing and re-opening the program. If the problem persists, please contact us through the user support section of www.ecopath.org.*Note the icons will match those on your system so may appear slightly different.
