"Isaac  says . . ."

Isaac has been running his business successfully for years.  "I pretty much know what my customers are going to be asking for next month, so planning is second nature.  But I like to use The Compleat Botanica for learning more about the uses of plants beyond flower arrangements."  Isaac likes to keep an on-line photo album of special arrangements he's made.  He's a renaissance man combining good business acumen, science, and aesthetics into a personal way of life.

Q:  Do I have to press the save button every time I change something?

A:  No.  Changes to your collection are made automatically whenever you change to a new view and whenever you select a different item in the list.  If you've inadvertently made a change, you can revert back to the original value by pressing the Undo button. See the full story.

Frequently asked questions

  How many pictures are contained in the program?

A:  Only about 100 flower pictures are supplied with the sample database.  The Compleat Botanica provides for the organization of plant pictures that are taken with today's ever-present digital cameras, but the software is not an encyclopedia of plant pictures.
