The manual






Navigating, the basics

In the beginning of this lesson, we assume that you are using the native Storga client, with a mouse or two-button trackpad.

Initial view scale setting

When you open the Storga client, the first operation consists in ensuring that the display scale is optimal, ie that the characters are neither too small nor too large.

You can zoom the content by pressing the 'Ctrl' key plus the ' ' key on the keyboard.To zoom out, press 'Ctrl' plus '-'
When the scale is not exactly one, it is displayed on the right of the screen.

The same adjustments can be made with the mouse, using the 'Configure' icon on the right of the screen to bring up the column of icons containing the positive and negative zoom.

Once the right scale of visualization has been found, it is possible to make it permanent.

Move inside a document

The native Storga client does not use scrollbars to allow page content to be scrolled when the screen is too small to display all of the content.
To scroll vertically, you can, when it exists, use the mouse wheel.
The standard scrolling mode of the native Storga client is to press the right mouse button, then move without letting go.

The Storga window is often split into several parts.

Switch between documents

Storga's browsing mode is very similar to that of a web browser.

Pitfalls for the novice user

Here are the three points on which users stumble most frequently during their first use of Storga:

Quand vous passez au dessus d'une icône, ou de certains champs, a help line is displayed at the bottom of the Storga window, par opposition à d'autres systèmes où l'aide est une bulle qui s'affiche juste à coté, donc pensez à regarder au bon endroit.

Similarly, when an action causes an error, the message is usually displayed at the bottom of the Storga window. when an action asks for confirmation, it is usually asked at the top of the Storga window, and not by a popup window in the middle of the screen.

If nothing more responds at the page level, it is probably that the connection with the Storga server is broken.

View multiple documents simultaneously

Storga uses tabs, like your web browser.
They are materialized on the right side of the Storga window.

However, their operation is quite different.
With Storga, there are always exactly 12 tabs.
With Storga, you cannot open a link in a new tab.

You can simultaneously display the content of several tabs on the screen, that is to say, in the majority of cases, simply cut the Storga window in two.
This functionality is managed via the 'Windows' icon on the right of the Storga window.
When the Storga window is thus split, on the left of the screen, only the menus corresponding to the active tab are displayed.

The special case of touch screens

You can change the scrolling and drag and drop conventions of the native Storga client to make it usable with a touch screen.

Storga UI Basics

Using a simple web browser

When instead of the native Storga client you use a simple web browser, such as Firefox, several things change in the user interface:


Scrolling is done using the scrollbars instead of using the right mouse button.


Tabs are managed by the browser.
In particular, you cannot 'copy' one tab to another as the Storga client allows, because web browsers do not offer this function.


The positioning and on-screen rendering of the various elements is a little more approximate.


Entering text in Storga's paragraph blocks is chaotic.


Commands and keyboard navigation (Alt...) only work in a few cases.


In general, the response times are longer, and the comfort of use is ultimately less overall.
