The main Scenario Editor interface consists of the menubar, toolbar, scenario list, dialog list, message flows, and status panel, as follows:

Includes these menus:

  • File — operations such as adding, saving, and printing scenarios

  • Edit — operations such as adding new roles, dialogs, messages, and editing scenario properties

  • Tools — tools such as the Schema Browser and Alias Browser

  • Plugins — plugins supplied by OpenCloud to provide additional formats for scenario creation and export.

  • Help — documentation, build information, and sample scenarios.
