Also, there are four types of general canvas windows:
Do not confuse these canvas window types with the other specialized dialogs, alerts, and windows used in rigiedit.
The title bar of a canvas window indicates its type, its numeric ID (optional), its label, and whether it is active (optional).
Note: Text editor windows may be spawned by rigiedit to display report, annotation, or source data; these windows are controlled by processes that are independent of rigiedit\ and do not respond to actions chosen from the Window menu.
