If you right-click on the records listed in a table viewer, MainBoss opens a menu of actions that can help you select entries in the table. For example, in most tables, the menu will include a Select all action; clicking this action in the menu selects all the entries in the table.

As another example, some right-click menus have an action named Select all editable. This selects all the entries that can be edited from this particular table viewer. For example, the Units table displays both units and the locations that contain the units. Records for the units can be edited from this table; locations cannot be. Therefore, Select all editable will select all the unit records in the table but will leave locations unselected.

Tables with entries that can be expanded or contracted have a menu item named Expand new entries. This lets you determine whether the entries are fully expanded or fully contracted when you start up MainBoss. For information on how to use this menu item, see the information at the end of Viewing Units.
