Decryptor Interface

Last Updated: 01.06.2019
The main Decryptor Interface is a Multiple-Document-Interface (MDI) with customizable floating tool windows consisting of a Main Menu Bar, a SQL Server/Group Window, the Decryption Window, an Output Log, a Search Window, a Decryption Queue and an Object Properties Window. All windows can be re-arranged and collapsed to suit your personal tastes.

The bottom-right of the Decryptor Interface contains an page indicator/counter and zoom bar that works independently for each tab in the Decryption Window.
