There are two levels of security in Visual Max Frame Professional. The more sophisticated of the two is the "optional" system.
Security using the optional system is based on the assignment of individual users to "groups", and the delegation of security access on a group by group basis. If a particular user is in two groups, one of which has access to a particular function while the other does not, the higher level of access trumps the lower one.
The interface mimics the NT User / Groups dialogs adding a "mover" form for dragging and dropping users and groups.
An "exceptions" table also exists, to further improve the flexibility of the group-based approach. With it you can have a user "inherit" the permissions of a group "except" this or that particular permission added to this table.
