Roles

Pathway recognizes that not all users have the same responsibilities. So the program has been organized to recognize two kinds of users:

Manager

The manager defines the style sheet, and sets up the default. This role is separated in that the Configuration Tool gives the manager the ability to do this. The Configuration tool edits a settings file and selects the style sheet.

Content Provider

The content provider uses the dialog box integrated into Fieldworks (Language Explorer / Translation Editor) or Paratext. This allows the content provider to accept the choices made by the manager or to over ride them by choosing a different output media or style sheet.
