Help on the Place Cities tab

If there are more than 25 city entries in the list, the list is divided into pages of 25 entries each.

Paging Toolbar

The paging toolbar (shown at right) allows you to move forward and backward within the pages of city entries. The toolbar contains four page navigation buttons described below:

First page
Previous page
Next page
Last page

The navigation toolbar is located at the top of the list at the far right. A second navigation toolbar if located at the bottom of the list in the center of the tab.

Some buttons will be disabled if the corresponding page navigation is not possible, such as the Previous Page button when you are already viewing the first page.


Using a filter, you can quickly locate entries in a long list.

A long list can contain dozens or even hundreds of pages making finding a specific city difficult and tedious. Using the filter capability, you can narrow down the list to only cities whose name matches the filter expression. For example, by entering "gr" into the filter text box and pressing the Apply button, only cities whose name includes a word starting with "gr" will be displayed.
