Studio interface Kit is comprised of 6 main sections and windows.
All images that are declared within a skin's graphic are listed in this window. You can add images into your skin graphic from the "Skin" toolbar menu
All available fonts that are declared are listed in this window. Manipulating font sizes and colors are acceptable through global fonts declared in the skin's graphic. Font types are limited and dependent on supported font types on the HMI display.
All skin controls (e.g., Labels and Picture Boxes) that are available to use within SIK are listed in this window. You can drag and drop any skin control directly onto a skin's graphic.
When any screen is selected, it is shown in this window. If there are multiple screens opened they will show up as tabs with their name type as the header.
