All graphics and statistics procedures of UNISTAT are accessed via standard pull down menus. When a procedure is selected, one or more dialogues will be opened, requesting further input. Each procedure has its own specific sequence of dialogues. However, the most commonly used ones are the Variable Selection Dialogue and Output Options Dialogue.
The five buttons provided at the bottom of Procedure Dialogues have the following tasks:
Help: Displays context sensitive help on the current procedure. The keyboard equivalent is <Alt> + <H>.
Cancel: Closes the dialogue and returns the control to the spreadsheet. The keyboard equivalent is <Alt> + <C>.
< Back: Drops the control back one level in the hierarchy of Procedure Dialogues. It is disabled at the first dialogue. The keyboard equivalent is <Alt> + <<>or <Escape>.
Next >: Displays the next dialogue. If there are no further dialogues, it is disabled. The keyboard equivalent is <Alt> + <>> or <Enter>.
Finish: Accepts all forthcoming dialogues in the procedure dialogue hierarchy with default options and executes the procedure. The keyboard equivalent is <Alt> + <F>.
