Operations not available on other toolbars can be bound to keyboard function keys and listed in the Function Key Palette, providing easy access to facilities used every day. iVision‐-Mac binds function keys to individual functions that it provides or to scripts recorded within iVision‐-Mac. This provides easy access to the operations that one uses frequently.
Here is an example of a typical function key palette. The function keys run scripts for display of the camera's view of the specimen, capture of images using fluorescence microscopy or brightfield microscopy, enhancement of the image, cropping unneeded data, and saving the results to disk.
