   Compleat Botanica    Using the software    Categories   


If you’ll be creating several new specimen records and each of them have some common characteristics, it’s convenient to have the common values automatically filled in for you.  This can be done by checking the box labeled “Default category for new specimen”.

As shown in this example, all new specimen will automatically have their Life cycle set to “Annual”.
