|Help-Section - User Interface|
|Your clipboard will appear when you start Aces High. It is your interface into the game and will remain with you at all times.
The <Esc> key toggles the clipboard between viewable and non-viewable.
Clicking and dragging the clipboard's "clip" will reposition the clipboard anywhere on the screen.
Whether online or offline, game play begins in a field Tower. The clipboard image shown here is what you will see when you enter the Tower, although the map will vary depending upon which terrain is loaded.
The map in Aces High is divided into sectors, each measuring 25 square miles.
Your current field's available spawn points are shown in the "Start Flight" box located at the bottom left corner of the clipboard. Different fields have different spawn points and clicking the "H" in the center will spawn you in the field hangar. Clicking any other point will launch you at the beginning of a runway, if you are in an airplane, or at a remote spawn point if you are in a vehicle.
The clipboard has many options available to it. Right-click anywhere on the terrain map, in the clipboard, and a menu of options will be displayed, as shown on the left. This menu allows you to turn on and off various items on the clipboard map, along with brining up other options as well.
Field Names: Tunr on this option to see the names of the fields in the arena. Fields starting with an "A" are air fields. Fields starting with a "V" are vehicle bases. Fields starting with a "P" are ports.

All Flights: This option shows all the flight paths for everyone in a mission, if there are any defined in the mission.

If the online terrain is configured to have a capture path, then a list of the fields which a country can capture will be listed under the heading, "Fields that can be captured".

It shows various information about the field you are at, along with the zone status information, and your countries headquarters status.
