Menu Commands Reference

Help > Main Window > Menu Commands Reference

The menu bar contains every command that you can use in Shine. Although almost all of the most-commonly-used functions can be accessed in other ways, the menu bar is there if you want access to everything!

This page lists every single command on that menu bar and what it does.
