The main Circuit Tools interface is a ‘Ribbon’ style Menu and consists of a main File button to access the main menu, a Quick access toolbar, and the different Tabbed menu items.
The visibility of the Ribbon menu can be toggled using the Ctrl + F1 shortcut key, the R shortcut key or the minimise/ maximise button to the right of the toolbar.
Hiding the menu gives you more room to analyse the data on smaller screens.

|Load circuit overlay||Load circuit overlay file|
|Start/finish wizard||Manually set the Start/Finish (Ctrl + G shortcut)|

Quick Access Toolbar
This is located in the top left corner of the screen.
These will change automatically when you click on one of the windows, and will contain relevant functions and settings for that particular window.
If you hover the mouse over any buttons, a text box showing helpful hints will appear giving more explanation about the function of that button.
To change units of Speed, Distance or Acceleration, use the Units menu within the Home tab.
The main analysis screen can be viewed in a number of different layouts depending on your requirements, information on all of the layouts available can be viewed within the Screen Layouts page.
Font and Colours
To change the font used within the software and the lap colours, use the Fonts and colours menu in the Home tab. It is also possible to change opacity (transparency) of unselected channels within this menu.
If Auto colour laps is enabled, then the fastest lap will always be displayed in red on the graph. To manually change the colour, switch off this feature and double click the coloured box alongside the Lap Number.
It is possible to change the language used within the software between English and Deutsch by selecting the currently used language on the right of the Home menu and using the drop down menu.
IMPORTANT - Changing the language will cause the software to immediately close and reopen in the selected language without reopening the file in use.
