The List area is a place to store list content. This content allows you to customize all the other parts of FieldWorks. Each list allows you to record the values you want to use.
In the screenshot above, the list of Genres for a text can be modified by editing the values in the entry pane. As you can see below, a new Genre can be added by clicking on the icon then filling in the entry pane. The arrow keys can be used to navigate through the list.
