This section is about Anatomy and Index Views. For information on Action Views, please see Viewing Muscle Actions below.
Once you have launched a View from the Anatomy or Index sections, a menu bar displaying eight icons appears at the bottom of the View screen. These icons allow you to navigate through the app and access additional content and functionality.
Home: Click this icon to return to the Home screen.
Anatomy: Click this icon to go back to the listing of Views that you chose from most recently. Depending on your navigation, choosing Menu will bring up the list of Muscle Attachments, Muscle Actions, Muscle Attachments and Actions, Region Views, Skeleton Views, Index, or Quizzes.
Actions: Click this icon to go to the complete listing of Muscle Actions, categorized by muscle region (e.g., Head, Neck, Shoulder/Arm). Each thumbnail will launch an animation with which you can interact.
Define: Click this after selecting a muscle or bone in the View to open a window displaying the definition of the selected structure. The window remains open if you select a different structure, and the definition for the most recently selected structure is displayed. To view a definition for a grouping of structures or a system, select a structure within that grouping. Click the name of the grouping in the breadcrumb trail at the top of the screen to select it, then click the Definition icon. You can view actions of the selected muscle by clicking the hyperlinks at the bottom of the definition window to navigate to the Muscle Actions interface. To close the definition window, click the "X" in the top left corner of the window, or click the "Definition" icon again.
Search: Click this icon to search for muscles or bones when you are in a View. You can either search by keyword or browse by structure name. The browse feature contains an alphabetical listing of all individual muscles and bones.
To search by keyword, type three or more letters of the muscle or bone you are searching for, then select "Done" or "Return". A box appears above the search bar containing the search results, including the names of all relevant muscles or bones and whether they belong to the muscular or to the skeletal system.
Each search result also displays the words "Add/Go To" or "Select/Go To" at the far right. Selecting "Add" adds the structure to the View. Choosing "Select" highlights the structure in the current View. You may need to reposition your view to see the selected structure if it is outside your current frame or obscured by other anatomy. Clicking the name of the structure in the search results is another way to add or select the structure in the View.
To automatically generate a new View featuring a muscle or bone you found via the search tool, Click "Go To" in the search results. The app selects (or adds and selects) the structure and repositions the image so that the desired structure is centered in the View.
Draw: Click this icon to access the drawing feature. A window will appear showing drawing tools. Use "Marker" to draw over anatomy in the View with your cursor. Selecting "Eraser" allows you to erase your markings manually, while "Erase All" clears all markings from the View.
