Why don’t I see more buttons and menus? + -

I just see a big workspace and very few buttons. Does this mean Genogram-Maker Millennium is very limited in what you can create?

It is true you see a large workspace and very few buttons when you open Genogram-Maker Millennium. Unlike most other software programs designed to create images, the Genogram-Maker Millennium presents a virtual clear screen on which you work without the clutter of buttons and menus. Instead, Genogram-Maker Millennium presents the buttons and menus that are needed for the content you are ready to create when you are ready to create that content. This is explained in the video tutorial Orientation to Genogram-Maker Millennium Part 1.
