This interface contains a Menu Bar, a Toolbar and several Panels.
By default, the following panels are displayed:
|Project files panel|

This menu allows you to create, open and save a Project; add new content to the current Project, modify its Project Properties; export the current Project as a CRG file or build it to an Application. Finally, you can exit the application through this menu.
This menu allows you to undo and redo last actions made in the diagram. You can also access to the preferences of the application through this menu.
This menu allows you to connect to and disconnect from your robot.
Once you are connected to your robot, you can also:
- play and stop the opened behavior.
- display or hide the Log viewer when an error occurs in the behavior.
- transfer files between your computer and your robot.
- update robot system (in Connection > Advanced) with a new version of its software.
This menu allows you to manage the displayed panels. You can select the ones you want to hide or display, you can then save and load named workspace Layouts or reset your workspace layout to default.
This menu allows you to see the statistics of the current behavior (number of boxes, number of lines, etc) and to access to the general documentation, the documentation about Choregraphe and the API reference. You can also get some information about the version of Choregraphe you are currently using through this menu.
These buttons are shortcuts to actions you will often need while creating behaviors. Note that keyboard shortcuts are also available.
