Input tools

Your input tools are keyboard and mouse. For many menu items, keyboard shortcuts are available and in the dialog windows you can jump from element to element by using the Tab key. Alternatively you can use the mouse for navigating on the screen and selecting items. CrysMAS requires a three key mouse or a mouse with scroll wheel. Depending on the mode of operation, the mouse buttons have different functions.
