Workspace & Drop-Down Menu¶
Prest’s workspace is the area where imported/Prest-generated datasets are available for analysis and exporting.
The three columns in the workspace area provide the following information about all datasets listed there:
Right-clicking on a dataset in the workspace area leads to the following options:
“View”. Displays the contents of the dataset in a separate window (can also be done by double-clicking on the dataset).
