Issuing commands

Within the Z Data Tools panels, you can use "primary" or "prefix" commands to instruct Z Data Tools to perform an action.

You enter primary commands on the Command line of Z Data Tools panels. On many of these panels, the most commonly used primary commands have been assigned to function keys, also known as Programmable Function keys or PF keys.

Some primary commands are exclusive to a particular panel, although most are available on several panels. Where a command is available on more than one panel, its behavior might differ depending upon the context in which it is used.

You enter prefix commands in a special prefix field in most panels, and in the prefix area within the editor panel. Prefix commands are generally exclusive to a panel and details of their operation are provided within each panel description.
