How To Use The SID Editor


The Succinct Implications Database (SID) Editor provides you with the facility to build your own explanations of zodiac events. You can start from scratch or start with a copy of any of the public (shared) databases (okay, currently there's only one database). You can keep your SID private or share it with others. Even when shared, only you can make changes to your database. The SID Editor has these features: multi-level undo, backup, restore and print entire SID.

The SID Editor uses a font face named "ZodiacJaDy" which may not be installed on your computer. No big deal - you can still use the editor just fine because when displayed without the Zodiac font, plain character mnemonic symbols are displayed. See the charts below. Of course, if you don't have the Zodiac font, then you won't see the glyphs.

You can get the ZodiacJaDy TrueType font ZODIACJD.ttf.
Linux users may need these: ZODIACJD.afm and ZODIACJD.t1a.

Warning: Each use of the UnDo button applies to each last use of the EDIT button, regardless of which implication is currently displayed. There is no re-do function.

Function Buttons - Bottom Row

 
Apply all changes to the database. The UnDo button will now no longer un-do changes.

Share your Succinct Implications Database with others using the Share button.

 
Save the contents of your Succinct Implications Database, typically for use as a backup. A new window is opened where you save a backup of your Succinct Implications Database.

Only the five most-recent backups for each database are maintained.

Note: If you made changes, first use the SaveToDatabase button.

 
Load to your Succinct Implications Database the contents of a backup file built using the Backup button. A new window is opened where you select which backup to replace your Succinct Implications Database.

Note: This will totally replace your Succinct Implications Database.

 
Build your Succinct Implications Database from text. A new window will be opened where you cut-and-paste using a text editor (like Notepad) from the text file you composed on your computer. The text file must be formatted as follows for each implication.
- keywords for transiting-planet, aspect and natal-planet
- next line begins the implication text
- followed with an empty line
For example:
Sun Conjunct Ascendant
You approach life head-on and enjoy your personal triumphs. You fulfill your personal desires with dedication.

Sun Conjunct Sun
Reassess your past year and establish goals for the upcoming one. Goals set now carry the force of personal drive.

Sun Conjunct Moon
Determine whether your goals are in harmony with your emotions. Set personal goals for the month.

See the output of the Print button for a full example.

Note: This will totally replace your Succinct Implications Database.

 
This will open a new window with all readings of your Succinct Implications Database appropriate for printing.

 
You can share your Succinct Implications Database with others using the share button. Normally your database is private, available to you alone.

Note: Once shared, your database cannot be un-shared except with assistance from technical support services.

Even when shared, only you can make changes to your database.
