The ``panner'' contains a map of your entire workspace.
The ``grid'' divides the map
into a number of rectangular regions (work areas).
You can choose to make the grid invisible.
Each work area represents a screen-sized area of the workspace.
Use the work areas to group and organize your windows.
The ``map'' represents your windows
by small rectangles (symbolic windows).
These show where your windows are in the workspace.
Each symbolic window is also labeled with the title of the window
The panner functions as more than a map. You can also use it to:
check which part of your workspace is currently shown on the screen
(your view area) indicated by the position of the viewfinder
on the map
navigate around the workspace (change your view area) by moving the
viewfinder across the map.
You can move to a new work area or you can choose
a view area overlapping several work areas.
Windows that are ``nailed'' stay
on the screen when you change the view area in the workspace.
The panner and the icon box are nailed by default.
find windows in your workspace using the labels on
their symbolic windows
find the currently active window
(shown by the symbolic window outlined in red)
move windows around the workspace by dragging their symbolic windows
across the map
