In Section 2 you can clear or remove individual files from your Recent Files List. Also in Section 2 there is a feature that we think you will appreciate, the Highlighted Fields List. You can click the to add or the to remove fields here and see them highlighted in the Viewport of the Main Window. To make sure that customers see this there are 2 fields already selected when you install the software, MSH.10 (MSH segment field #10 the Message Control ID) and PID.5 (PID segment field #5 the Patient Name).
For many customers Section 3 will be very welcome. It will list all of the different CORE HL7 Definitions installed for your viewer. You can just click the version you want and click OK to change. This section is also the front end to the CORE HL7 Definition Management sub-section for curating HL7 Definitions outlined in Working with HL7 Definitions.
One important thing to know: Every CORE HL7 Definition also contains a Properties section which includes a Message Envelope. In the CORE HL7 Viewer we maintain these values on this screen in the Viewer Settings and they are GLOBAL. IE these settings are applied dynamically to each HL7 Definition when you choose it for use.
