There are a number of Software Tools that are available to a Biamp Canvas file. The main design area is the Surface which is used to lay out control elements that are related back to a Tesira Project File. Each control element has a Property Sheet that is used to define its behavior and formatting. A Control Library can be used to add regularly used control elements to be stored for as part of re-using required controls. A number of additional software configuration functions are available via the Menus and Toolbars. Keyboard Shortcuts can be used if preferred for some functions.
