This module allows to look through existing object databases, add new user (custom) databases and fill them (Figure 8). Added user databases are then used around the application in the same way as internal databases. All functions available in Object Selection, Global Search, Notes, Observations Lists and Star Chart apply to them.

This unique feature greatly enhances application functionality as users could create any number of own databases for their needs and easily distribute them around.

The screen shows a list of available databases. Press on the database to see its content or fill it.

Creation of a user database

To create a user database press an Add button. Set database name and decide if you want to add additional (custom fields) for object description. When no custom fields are required the database with standard fields is created. Otherwise the user is given an opportunity to create any number of additional fields and select their types.
