member using the PDF editor, displaying a full screen of data, and letting you edit any data that is displayed.
You can scroll the data in any direction (up, down, left or right) by a half or full page, or by any number of lines (or columns) by means of the scroll commands.
You can use line commands directly on the affected lines to perform line-oriented editing functions. For instance, you can enter
D
on a line to delete it or
R
to repeat it. You can perform commands on several lines at the same time. Enter general primary commands in the command field on line two of the display to edit operations.
For detailed instructions on the editor, enter
HELP
on the command line of the ELIPS EDIT screen to view the tutorial.
During an EDIT session, you can copy or move data either out of or into the member you are editing.
The ELIPS VIEW function is similar to the EDIT function for existing members. The difference is that no updates take place for the member when you end the session. You can use this functionality to make changes to the member; then create or replace a member with the changes you made. The member you accessed in VIEW mode is not updated with the changes.
