Customize the visibility of Pointwise's top-level Panels using the Panels menu. Selecting a panel from this menu will add it to the list of visible Panels and make the active panel. The active panel is the panel that is currently displayed.
Note: When a Panel is activated, it may change the selection mechanism used in the Display window. For example, when the Frameworks panel is active, frameworks are selectable from the Display — not grid entities.
Panels may be opened or closed as necessary. A Panel may be closed by clicking the the red X icon associated with the panel (the icon is highlighted in the image below). However, the icon will only appear on the Panel that is currently active.
