File menu

Through this menu, the current user logs out of the program, which remains open after logging out. This also closes all currently opened documents. If changes are not saved on any document, the program asks the user if he wants to save the changes.

Lock program
With this action, the user stays logged in to the program and locks the main program window so that it is not possible to see or open new documents or change settings. Changes to open documents are still possible, as the open documents lock does not close. if the user has saved their password for the active session, the program will ask for the password again when unlocked.
In the menu Administration> General settings> Other> Program lock, it is possible to set the automatic program lock after a certain time (in minutes) of user inactivity. Inactivity is considered not to use the keyboard and mouse. The changed setting is taken into account when restarting the program.

This action exports the selected document(s) as individual XML files. The data format can be specified in the format drop-down list.

Documents can be deleted by their authors and administrators. if the document has already been initialed or signed, the author of the initial / signature must remove it so that the author of the document can delete the document. The administrator can also delete an already initialed / signed document (if it is not issued), he can delete internal documents at any time.
