Node Editor.

The Node Editor is activated by highlighting a particular Survey Data Node and executing either the Insert Existing File In Project or Edit Node operations. The Node Editor allows you to insert or change a Survey Data File for a particular node in the tree. It also allows you to enter linking information, fixed station and the geographic location of the cave.


The Node Editor has two pages. Each one performs a different set of operations. Here is a complete description:


1. File Page. The File Page allows you to work with the files associated with a node. From File Page, you can change the survey name, control the path used by the file, import the file from a different directory and add comments
