The Protect mode is a powerful way to protect your workspaces, for example in teaching situations or in autonomous installations. See setup-panel-tab-protect. More specifically, if you do not want the user to change anything in your workspace, as it should be, for example, in interactive terminals.
When the protect mode is activated, only the racks and various commands/panels that you can choose, are visible.
In the following example, only the mains commands are visible and it's impossible to break down the workspace.
Example of protected mode
Open the setup-panel-tab-protect to setup the protect mode.
You have to set a password for the protect mode. By default the password is
PROTECT. Type the password anywhere in an Usine’s window to activate/deactivate the protect mode. You can keep the default value or define a new password.
Then you have to chose the folder where you want to put all your workspaces.
By default it is
./Deploy. It means that, by default, the folder is inside the Usine folder or the .app package on MacOSX. You can keep the default value.
If you have workspace(s) that you want to be loaded in protect mode proceed as follow:
/Deploy/in the Usine's package root folder. On MAC, right click on the .app and choose view content of the package.
Usine will be automatically started in protect mode and the start-page-panel will only display the content of the
/Deploy/ folder, like in the screenshot bellow:
Start page in Deploy mode
/Deploy/ folder contains only one workspace, this workspace is loaded directly and no start-page is displayed.
In conjunction with the workspace settings you can create very precise layouts for your project:
To determine what has to be shawn or hidden in the interface enable or disable items in the following list. See setup-panel-tab-protect for details.
