With Folders it is already possible to bring some structure in the Project Explorer and to group together several related objects (spreadsheets with data stemming from text files of similar origin, red, green and blue values of an image imported into three different matrices, etc.). With Workbook the user has the possibility for another additional grouping.
Workbook helps the user to better organize and to group different data containers (Spreadsheet and Matrix). This object serves as the parent container for multiple Spreadsheet- and/or Matrix-objects and puts them together in a view with multiple tabs.
Add Data Containers
A new workbook is created via the Add New menu from the main menu bar or from the context menu of the project explorer. Upon creation, an empty workbook is created
and the actual data containers like spreadsheet or matrix are added by the user on demand like in the example below showing a workbook with two spreadsheets added:
Data containers added to the workbook are shown as child entries in the project explorer and the user can navigate between them directly in the project explorer:
