Contents window

The contents window in SuperMemo displays the knowledge tree of the current collection 

These are the most prominent components of the contents window:

In the figure above, red stop icons denote dismissed elements (i.e. elements that do not participate in learning), while L-plate icons indicate elements that take part in the learning process. L-plate icons are light blue if the element is pending (i.e. waiting for memorization) and dark blue if the element is memorized (i.e. included in the repetition schedule)

The plus sign to the left of the element indicates that the element has children. You can see the children when you click the plus sign. The minus sign to the left of the element indicates that the element with children can be collapsed. When you click the minus sign, all children will disappear from view and the minus sign will be replaced with a plus sign

The contents window provides also a number of advanced options from its pop-up menu. To open the pop-up menu right-click over the contents window or press Alt+F10.
