Pentana Risk supports multiple tabs and pages, allowing you to work on more than one item at once across multiple tabs, or even multiple browsers.

All links in Pentana Risk have a tooltip: an accompanying short description for the link that appears if you hover the mouse over it without clicking. This can be useful since it tells you where the link will take you or what effect it might have. It can also show the full link text if the link is displaying in a part of the page that is space constrained, such as a table column, or not all of the link can be displayed.
