Learnbar

Contents


SuperMemo 16 introduces a learning bar (also called learn bar or learnbar) along the bottom of the element window. The bar encapsulates the most important options used for reading, learning, and editing the collection. It was designed to make it faster and easier for both newcomers and seasoned pros to access most program functions with the use of a single hand. The functions can be executed using the mouse with the help of speed buttons and simple context menus (available with a right click). Learnbar icons have been made colorful to assist their mnemonic functions.

If you do not see the learning bar or some of its options, you need to switch SuperMemo to either middle or professional levels first. You can do it by choosing File : Level : Middle or Professional or pressing Ctrl+Alt+F12 repeatedly until you see it.
