Opening an Existing Database

The first step in working with a database is to open it.

To open an existing database
Do one of the following:
  • Choose Database > Open Database (or press Command-Shift-O), then select the database in the dialog.

  • Drag a database file from a Finder window to the Cinema Tools application icon.

All the records in the open database are listed in the List View window, and the Detail View window shows the first record’s details. See About the Detail View Window and About the List View Window for details about using these two windows.

Note: The current database closes if one is already open.
