The Results dock window shows information about the layouts Animate generates. 


The columns can be sorted by left-clicking on the column header. Right-clicking on the Results column headers allows you to set which columns are visible.

  • The Name column shows the name of the layout view, if a layout has been saved. Layout views are named layout, layout1, layout2, … layout where the number is incremented for each layout saved.

  • The Area column shows the area of this layout, in square microns.

  • The Ratio column shows the aspect ratio of the layout, of the form X : Y.
