USER GUIDE  

Five  things users should  know before using BioVinci

Drag-and-drop

D rag-and-dro p  is the basis for operating in BioVinci.  Draggable items are columns of your tabular data or even the whole table.  

Use existing templates

Sometimes, bringing  data to a ready-to-process format can be time consuming. To save users’ time, we have provided a list  of commonly used templates (examples) . You can use these templates to have a sense of the data structures that are valid for an analysis.

All details are customizable

Forget about using another SVG/photo editor to  fine-tune  your plots. BioVinci allows you to customize your plots in detail, including ticks, scales, rotations, fonts, sizes, colors, styles, etc. You can visit the Edit functions  section to see what the software can do.

Your data are safe

We always treat your data with the highest level of security and privacy. First, BioVinci does not change the original inputs (your XLXS or CSV) but instead operates on a copied version of the input files. Then, i n the app version, these copied data  are stored in a default BioTData  directory in your home  folder.  If you want to backup, archive, transfer or copy all of your BioVinci data you’ll need to copy this entire folder. ( Later, we hope to allow you to easily select individual projects).

SPECIAL NOTE FOR MACINTOSH USERS .  In order to access certain features, you will need to perform a “right-click”.  This may depend on the system you are using so please select “System preferences…” in the apple menu and then choose “mouse” or “trackpad”.  Then make sure that “secondary click” is enabled (for trackpad users for example, this is under the “Point & Click” subsection and requires a two-finger click).
