VCS Hints: Raster Panel   


Access: via Main Menu - `File' -> `Save Raster'

The Raster Panel is used to save or delete raster files. There are two modes for saving a raster file: `Append' mode appends raster output to an existing raster file; `Replace' mode overwrites an existing raster file with new raster output.

How to Use the Raster Panel

Changing the Raster Directory:
Type the desired directory in the `Directory' input text window. Press the `Return' or `Enter' key to register the end of typing. The `Sub_Dir' scroll window and possibly also the `.ras Files' scroll window will change. (If the directory does not exist, the current directory will reappear.) The directory can also be changed by moving the pointer over a directory name in the `Sub_Dir' scroll window and clicking the left mouse button.

Selecting a Raster File:
Move the pointer over the desired raster file name in the `.ras File' scroll window and click the left mouse button. The `Output File' input text window will display the selected raster file.

Deleting a Raster File:
Move the pointer over the desired Raster file name in the `.ras File' scroll window and click the left mouse button. Now move the pointer over the red `Delete .ras File' button, and click the left mouse button.

Changing the Raster Output Mode:
Move the pointer over the `Raster Output Mode:' button, and press and hold the left mouse button. Move the pointer over `Append' or `Replace' and release the left mouse button. The green button in the upper right corner of the Raster Panel will change, showing the toggle selection.
