Choose the best Picklist

Recommended Posts

There are two versions of the Picklist. The Simple Picklist is the default and will come up when you click on the binoculars in the main toolbar (or press F2). It provides a quick-and-dirty alphabetical list of everyone in the project. But there is another choice. The Expanded Picklist offers even more information, including an "Event Mode" with which you can view a miniature version of the Person View for each person as you move within the list. The Expanded Picklist also has the distinct advantage of supporting the Accent feature. Because of its higher workload, the Expanded Picklist can be slower and is not recommended for users with very old computers or extremely large projects. To choose between the Simple and Expanded Picklists, access File > Preferences > Program Options > Lists.
