You can see the documents of your database, organized as a tree, on the left side. The right pane displays the contents of the document, currently selected (active) in the left window.

The toolbars and panes can be "dragged" and "docked" around the main window. This gives you the flexibility of rearranging the window to the layout that best suits you. Panes can be combined together and are accessible via the vertical or horizontal tabs.
