With the iNOW UI Designer, classic greenscreens can be transformed into modern and comfortable frontends with just a few mouse clicks. Many useful controls are available and leave nothing to be desired. The existing RPG business logic is used unchanged.
Designing, arranging and aligning is particularly intuitive and fast thanks to multiselect, drag & drop, copy & paste.
