The View menu has the following options:

Zoom in on View: If you click this menu item, MainBoss will hide the control panel in this window. If you were looking at a table viewer, you will see an enlarged version of the View section (without the Defaults section, even if you were just looking at that section). If you were looking at a report window, you will see all sections of the window.

When you are zoomed in like this, Zoom in on View will be marked with a checkmark in the View menu. To zoom out again, click Zoom in on View again. This returns to the window's usual appearance.

Open in New Window: If you click this menu item, MainBoss opens a duplicate of the current window.

Change Active Filter: This item lets you change the definition of "active" requests, work orders and purchase orders. For example, you can specify that these records should only be considered active if their most recent history record is less than a year old. For more information, see The Active Filter.

Show compact browsers: If this is checkmarked, table viewers will not show details from the currently selected record. This makes it possible to show many more records in the table viewer window. If the entry is not checkmarked, table viewers will have an area showing the contents of the currectly selected record; this reduces the number of records that the window can show at any one time.
