If the toolbar is not visible, it can be switched on using View > Toolbars > GISquirrel.

The toolbar menus contain the following commands:





Import Layer

This command opens a form for importing any vector layer from the map into the GISquirrel database.


Bulk Import This command opens a form for importing multiple layers or datasets.


Feature Class Admin

This command opens a form for creating, removing and managing feature classes. By default it remembers the last database connection, and shows all feature classes in that database.

This command opens a form for checking/entering licence details. This can convert an evaluation licence to a full licence, and can also increase the number of licensed seats. Licence details are stored on each PC.


Start Editing

This command starts a GISquirrel editing session. The user is prompted to select a layer or group of layers to edit, and to choose whether to edit selected features (if any) or the whole table.


Stop Editing

This command ends a GISquirrel editing session, and prompts the user whether they want to save their edits or not. It is also possible to end a GISquirrel editing session using the standard “Stop Editing” command on the Editor toolbar.
