Using the To-Do List

Opening the To-Do List

The To-Do List displays a list of tasks you want to do in the current library.

To open the To-Do List:

  • Click the To-Do List button in the PowerBar, or select Tools>To-Do List from the menu bar.

To-Do List entries

You can create an entry in the To-Do List at any time to remind you about any task you need to complete. You can create entries that are hot-linked to quickly get you from the To-Do List to the painter and the specific object you need.

When you move the pointer over entries on the To-Do list, the pointer changes to a hand when it is over a linked entry.

You can export or import a To-Do List by selecting Import or Export from the pop-up menu. Doing this is useful if you want to move from one computer to another or you need to work with To-Do Lists as part of some other system such as a project management system.
