Editing Graphics

To perform the following actions, use the options of the Edit menu:

  • Selecting objects
  • Modifying objects
  • Editing data tables

These actions are described below.

Selecting Objects

When the Select objects function is active, information on the individual objects appears in the status line as you move the mouse pointer over them.

If the calling ABAP program offers extended functions for an object, you can call them by doubleclicking the object. SAP Portfolio Graphics sends a message to the calling ABAP program. The ABAP program then performs the appropriate functions.

When an object is selected, the whole object is selected, not, for example, only individual object segments. This has no effect on other functions of SAP Portfolio Graphics.

Modifying Objects

When the Modify objects function is active, information on the individual objects appears in the status line as you move the mouse pointer over them.

You can modify individual objects as follows:

  1. Doubleclick on the object you want to modify.
  2. A pop-up window appears. Make your changes here.

You can modify the following object characteristics:

    • Shape (circle, triangle and square)
    • Colors (filled, line, text and arrow colors)
    • Title
    • Text (to display in the status line)
    • Values for portfolio categories (for example, relative market share, growth, etc.)

Editing Data Tables

If you select the Edit data sheet function, the underlying data table appears. You can then make your changes. (This function is not currently available.)
