Tip 5: Quick Way to Manage the Petro-SIM™ Desktop


I open a lot of windows in Petro-SIM while I am investigating models. This often makes it difficult for me to jump between windows and/or obtain a clear view of model. Is there an easier way to manage the Petro-SIM Desktop?


Yes. From Petro-SIM version 5 onwards, we have invested time to improve the user interface. Now you can use the quick command buttons in the Petro-SIM ribbon bar to achieve your purposes.  


The following screenshot is an example of Petro-SIM desktop when a simulation file is opened with different windows covering the main flowsheet. 

Instead of manually closing windows one-by-one, you can do the following steps to clear the Petro-SIM desktop:

  1. On the View tab of the ribbon bar, click Hide/Show Windows.

  2. This will make all the windows minimised with main flowsheet clear to view.

  3. You can click Switch Windows to restore the window that you would like to view by selecting it in the dropdown list.

  4. If you click Hide/Show Windows again, it will restore all the windows.

  5. You might find these other functions useful to you as well. 

    Arrange Desktop

   Cascade all views that are currently open and not minimised.


   Close current window or all windows.

6.  Also, if you have an extended monitor or are working with multiple monitors, you can drag windows outside
     the main Petro-SIM™
 window to more easily view both at the same time.

We will be checking on how well you do by asking some simple questions in November. Three lucky winners will be picked and receive KBC exclusive prizes. Do keep a look out for our periodic email.
