Switching Between Overview and Detail Mode

It is possible to view hierarchical structures in either overview or detail mode.

  • Overview mode means that the system compresses the hierarchical structure you are working with so that you can see all of it in one view window. Because the objects in the structure are compressed, the text that identifies the objects may not be completely shown.
  • Detail mode means that the system presents a hierarchical structure so that you can easily read the text that describes each of the objects in the structure. Because the structure is larger, you may not be able to see all of it.

If you are working with multiple view window, it is possible to use different view modes in different view windows. For example, view window 1 could present an overview of a hierarchical structure, while view window 2 could provide a detailed presentation.

To switch between view modes, proceed as follows.

  1. Either:
    • Click on the menu options Goto ® Detail<->View, or
    • Click on the Detail<->View button.

The system changes the view mode.
