Folder Lists

Each tab in Gopher, except the Planner, is capable of holding two separate lists made from the Find command. Each list is independent of the other and only one at a time can be displayed in the tab.  Above each tab, the name that is currently in either List 1 or List 2 will be displayed, similar to the picture below.  If there is not a name in a list for a particular tab, three dots will appear instead of a name.

The lists can be toggled from list one to list two by clicking the List List1Folder or List List2Folder folders.  The status bar on the bottom of the Gopher screen shows which list you are currently on.  The current list is noted by a red arrowhead pointing to the list.  In the above example, the current list on the Profile tab is list 2 and we are currently on “Lytle’s” record.   

A LEFT click to any tab sets the tab to List 1.  Whatever was on this tab before in List 1 will be displayed.  A RIGHT click to any tab is an ACTION click.  A find will automatically be performed for the name on the tab being clicked from and the results of that RIGHT click Find will automatically go to List 2, erasing any information that was previously on List 2 on the tab clicked. 

Example:  We are on Isaac Newton’s Profile record and want to review his resume so we RIGHT click the Resume tab.  A Find is automatically performed on the Resume tab for Isaac Newton’s name and if a resume record is found it will be displayed in the List 2 folder.  If a record was previously in the List 2 folder on the Resume tab, it will be overwritten with Isaac Newton’s resume. 

The purpose of the two lists per tab is for book marking, enabling you to navigate the entire Gopher database without erasing information that might have been needed on List 1 for any tab. 

Note:  A switch from one List 1 to List 2 or List 2 to List 1 can be accomplished on any tab by clicking the applicable folder.  You can also open either List 1 or List 2 on any tab by clicking the name associated with the List above the tab or by clicking the button containing the three dots if a name is not present.
