Click/Command Interface

As mentioned above, it is possible to add star commands to OSLO. These commands can either be added to the menu system, or executed directly by typing the command name into the command line. Although many Windows programs boast of "no commands to learn", all programs are based on commands. The question is whether the commands can be directly accessed by the user. OSLO retains the traditional command interface as an option for the user. This provides a highly efficient way to use the program, and the name Click/Command indicates that at any point, the user can choose either to enter a command, or click on an icon or menu with the mouse.

It is possible to enter commands while a spreadsheet is open. OSLO distinguishes between commands and data, and carries out the appropriate action. For this reason, the cells on OSLO spreadsheets are called SmartCells.
