Users can switch between panes using Tmux commands.  The panes are as follows: Fence (top), Clowder (middle-left), example extractor (middle-right), Polyglot (middle-left), example convert (middle-right), and the BD CLI (bottom). Users can run BD-CLI commands to interact with Brown Dog Data Transformation Service (username: bd, password: browndog):

CTRL-b <arrow key> will navigate panes.  CTRL-b then typing :kill-session will exit the bd-base session.  Note, there is a .tmux.conf file included in bd-base.  If you paste this into your home directory before starting up a bd-base session you will be able to navigate panes via the mouse and end the session by typing CTRL-b then CTRL-c.
