 +====== Show/Hide Access point as help hint ======
 +//TO BE DELETED// --- //[[deborah@marcofquality.com|Deborah]] 2014/10/09 20:54//
  
 +This option is invoked from Record Menu | View 
 +
 +{{:menu:viewshowaccesspoint.jpg?700|}}
 +
 +This option controls the display of the authorized access point in a RIMMF Identifier element.
 +
 +In brief, RIMMF Identifiers are control numbers that link records to one another. On their own, as shown in the snippet for a manifestation below, they do not provide very much information for the cataloger (though they are essential for the system):
 +
 +{{:menu:rimmfidbare.png|}}
 +
 +Note that the access point in these elements is read-only and for display purposes only--there is no way that you can edit this information (in the normal sense of the word).
 +
 +To make this data (arguably the most important data in an RDA record) more meaningful, we have two ways of enhancing its display in RIMMF.
 +
 +The first, which is the default, is to embed the accesss point of the record being linked-to in the text column itself, using a special font for emphasis:
 +
 +{{:menu:rimmfidembed.png|}}
 +
 +The second way is to display only the RIMMF Identifier (as in the first screenshot, above), but to 'pop-up' the access point as windows help hint whenever you drag the mouse over one of these identifier elements:
 +
 +{{:menu:rimmfidhint.png|}}
 +
 +Note that in the second case, you do not need to click on the cell--simply move the mouse over any portion of it.
