By selecting compact mode, the advanced user can specify object parameters to execute unload, load or scan functions in only two steps. Other object parameters can also be specified or modified by selecting an appropriate submenu. Another feature of compact mode is to execute one or more processing steps described in wizard mode (see Wizard) without having to pass the entire sequence of processing steps. Compact mode is thus more powerful than advanced mode and requires yet more expert knowledge. This Dokument covers the following topics:
There are two ways to select compact mode:
Adjust the Object Handler profile
See the documentation on the
parameter in Profile Settings.
By the command SET INPUT-MODE C
or SET IM C
See the documentation on the
INPUT command in Commands for Navigation and Special
Functions in Direct Commands.
In compact mode, processing instructions can be carried out in two steps. In step one, you choose a function to be executed from the compact mode main menu. As a result, a second menu specific to your choice is displayed. Here, you can enter parameters specific to the function chosen in step one. This Abschnitt covers both menus:
