By default, only files ending with a .cr suffix and directories are shown in the scrolling list. To change this filter, enter a name with wildcards (e.g. *.jpl or *) and click the Filter button.
To specify a file name, double-click on one in the list or enter the name directly into the text field at the bottom. A single-click on a file in the list puts the file name in the text field, where you may edit it if you like and press <ENTER> or press the Open or Save button when you're done.
The Delete and Make Dir buttons affect the files on the Unix file system. Delete removes the specified file and Make Dir makes a directory with the specified name. The toggle menus at the top let you go back to recent directories you've been browsing.
There are two ways in which you can feed Tcl commands to Crafter: (1) by typing commands into a Tcl shell window, and (2) by sending commands through a pipe.

If you don't want to quit Geomview, then kill Crafter by going to the list of external modules in Geomview's main window and clicking on Crafter's red instance entry. This entry begins with a number in brackets. For example, the middle of the three lines below is the instance entry:
Crafter Crafter "voyager.cr" Crafter "voyager.cr"
You may restart Crafter by clicking on one of the entries in the list of modules. One or two entries are provided -- one with no arguments and with the arguments you specified on the command line if any.

with keyboard shortcuts. Each menu in the Model Editor and many of the

Then, to choose the Save menu item, either press the <s> key
or press the <DOWN> arrow two times
and then press <ENTER>.
Invoking a button using the keyboard is much more straight forward than
invoking menu items. With the cursor in the window containing the button
you want to invoke, simply type the <ALT> key plus the mnemonic
character. For example, to invoke the Dismiss button on any of the
