A command is a single instruction in the project template. There are many different types of commands (e.g. select, extract), each corresponding to a different tool. You can create a command by using the respective tool in the tool box. To open the tool box click on the + button on a command.
Each command type has various settings that can be modified in the command options panel.
The active command
The active command is the command that you're currently working on. When you tune settings in the command details pane, they affect the active command. If the active command is a selection, it will have a number on its right, which represents the number of elements selected on the current page.
Some commands can have children. When you create a command using the + button and the toolbox, the new command will be a child of the active command.
Creating commands is done through the + button on the right side of some commands, or through keyboard shortcuts.
You can access the toolbar through the on the right side of other commands. Some commands do not have the + button. This is because ParseHub has detected this is not common behaviour. In some cases, where you want to create a command regardless, you can show the by holding shift and hovering over the command.
Command Keyboard Shortcuts:
- ctrl + s - creates an empty select command
- ctrl + j - creates an empty relative select command
- ctrl + e - creates an extract command
- ctrl + l - creates a Begin New Entry command
You can remove a command by clicking the × button to the right of a command, when you hover over it.
Just click on the command you want to move, and drag it up or to the side to move it into the correct spot. You will see a red highlight of where the command will go when you release.
Pay attention to where the command is going to go. The horizontal movement of the red highlight indicates what the command will be the child of.
