By default, Studio 3 displays the following window tabs: Start, Design, Visualizer, Files, Plots, VR. You can activate a window by pressing on the tab. If you axidentally closed any of the windows or want to display additional windows, go Views | Windows , and select from the menu.

By default, Studio 3 offers Profile 1. But you can scroll down and pick up any of the profiles you feel more comfortable with and press Load.
In project session, Datamine files are variably devided into 2 categories: internal and external. If a file is added to a project, it is considered internal. Certain manipulations in Studio 3 require files to be added into the project before performing calculations or operations. Any datamine file, which is not added into the project is considered external. Technically there is no difference between the files. One and the same file may be external for one project and internal for the other.
In this tutorial we will use the following types of Datamine files:
Instrument panel, Data|Load|External Datamine File|Strings
Browse for a file on you hard disk and click Open. This time we use tutorial files automatically placed on your hard disk after Studio 3 installation
Press OK in the next window. A string file, representing topograpy isolines, will appear in Design window
Type uv, the abbreviation for Update Visualizer, to activate Visualizer window. Rightclick on the Visualizer window and pick up the options to change view angle, rotate, perspective, etc.
Depending on the coordinates of the view point, the file loaded in Design window may not fit into the screen area and not appear immediately. Or when you unload a file, it still might look present on the Design window, though absent in memory. In this case type rd to redraw the screen.
You can change view angle interactively right in the Design window by holding Shift key and moving the pointer around with left button on (Shift+Left Button). Remember, you are not rotating the object. You are just moving the view point around.
To return to plan view, type 1 and click on the window anywhere within the empty area and select Plan from the menu. Press OK
