The STx Workspace: The Application & Setup Tree

Ws as tree.png

The Application & Setup Tree area of the Workspace is located on the left-hand side of the Workspace window. Each of the functions and applications shown can be selected from the tree. The selected application or setup function starts in a window of its own and opens additional windows as needed. Though unusual at first, you will soon come to appreciate the flexibility which this allows you in displaying windows from different applications side by side.

STx stores all these parameters in the current workspace file. Workspace files end .stxws (the default is default.stxws). Since the user may require different STx configurations, the user can save and load different workspace files. In order to save a new configuration under a different name, use the menu File > Workspace > Save As. The default STx settings are stored in the read-only file stxconfig.xml. If you every need to restore the original STx settings, close STx, delete the workspace file and restart STx.

Warning: The stxconfig.xml file should never be edited by the user!The Application & Setup Tree is divided into a number of different branches, grouping related functionality:


The Tools branch in the Application & Setup Tree contains the following tools:

  • Recorder - an application for recording and segmenting on the fly
