Getting Started - 4. A quick tour of Interface
In "Create your first library" we have successfully created our first library. Now, we can start using Eagle!
In this article, we will introduce Eagle starting from the interface. As shown in the following figure, Eagle's interface can be divided into several main parts:
- Search bar
The sidebar is mainly made up of "content navigator", "smart folders", "folders" sections. We can click on items in the sidebar to switch contents of different categories, This is one of the most frequently used functions of Eagle. In the following tutorials, we will explain every single function more thoroughly.
The Toolbar controls the currently displayed content and the way how it displays. The slider in the middle can adjust the display size of images, the search bar and the filter to the right can be used to search images to your need.
The Inspector displays properties of currently selected items, such as name, tags, URLs. every detail listed here can be edited, modified directly. The detail displayed in the inspector varies based on the status of Eagle, roughly, there are statuses like “unselected”, “ selected”, “multiple items selected”.
Image list displays contents of the current page, You can adjust how the contents’ item, size, layout are displayed to your likings.
