The analysis menu offers **various options** to **analyze** geometric
quantities of a particle shown in the graphics window using the mouse pointer
for the __analysis__. Examples are
measuring distances, angles, atom environments, displaying basis vectors,
performing symmetry analyses, and more.

**L-clicking** the **“Analysis”** entry of the **main
menu bar** at the top of the graphics window opens a **list of entries**
offering all options available for graphical analysis. The options are grouped according
to geometric or other similarities and details of the different options are
explained in the following subsections.
