2.15 1D Edit

This command sends the current entry, in BCCAB format, to the text editor selected in the Preferences menu (see Section 2.19).

The text editor will launch a window which is then available for manually editing the entry. Those PreQuest commands which could modify the current entry are forbidden until the editing session is exited. When you have finished and quit from the text editor the new BCCAB text is read back into the program, and all active checks are re-run.

The BCCAB format is designed for easy text editing and is defined in Chapter 4.

Note that all of the text fields visible in the 1D window can be directly edited by selecting the insertion/edit point with the mouse and proceeding from there. The 1D Edit function is, therefore, only really necessary where the fields that need to be changed are hidden.
