The following screenshots of ignition are from a Beta version; there contents are subject to change until the final version. Especially the main part of the icons visible in these screenshots are subject change.

A small overview showing an example database project. You can see an embedded interface to a database with 3 interconnected tables.

In this window you can set how the border of the selected cells should look like. As you can see, there are some pre-defined border types, as well as the possibility to change each border to a specific thickness and color.

Use this requester to assign a (self-defined) format template to one or more cells at a time. Furthermore, it's possible to change the number of decimal places independently from the template definition.

In this page of the requester you can assign a color or a pattern to the selected cells. And, the horizontal and vertical alignment can be altered here.

There you can set some attributes of the font used for the selected cells.
ignition uses outline fonts only, e.g. the AGFA Compugraphic Intellifonts which comes with the System.

ignition manages the user preferences in single modules, the main part of them aren't only globally valid but can be assigned to a specific project.


In this window you choose the colors you want to have handy in your palette.

Even the menus can be set differently for every single document.
When you define a menu item you can choose from self-defined commands, and a vast number of internal ones which are also accessable via ARexx.

There you can see the preferences modules of the database seen in the first screenshot.
The project defines its own format templates and names, both of them still contain the globals (the plus sign on the right hand of the item).
All other preferences are inherited from the global modules.

In this window you set document specific attributes like the paper size, passwords for the whole document or cells only, etc.
Furthermore you can assign actions to several events, like internal commands or ARexx scripts.

Using this requester you can search your cells for a specific text or different attributes and replace those which contains them with other text and/or attributes.
E.g. you can, in one step, set every cell containing the word "yellow" to have a yellow background and a bold faced text.

In this insignificant window you can define database tables which are integrated in your spreadsheet. Then, you can access them with masks or directly, sort them by different fields, select specific entries etc.

Here you can see the definition of the contents of a chart and how they should be accessed. With the other pages in this requester you can e.g. change the chart type, choose a font for the axes etc.

In this part of the diagram definition you can set the colors for the different values or wether or not they should be marked in any (object dependent) fashion.
In the preview window you can see the selected data as a simple bar chart.

Here you can have a look at some of the graphic objects available in ignition over an interface accessable to 3rd party developers.
With the window you can see in the foreground, you can set several attributes of the button object.

Using this requester you can add a function to the current cell's formula. You can also use it to get an overview over the existing functions including a short help text with them.
In the current beta version, there are already 85 functions in different divisions.
