Displaying Substructures

Use this feature to display a specific area of a hierarchical structure, by focusing on a substructure. Substructures are the individual parent / child structures that collectively makeup a larger hierarchical structure.

When you use this feature, Graphics temporarily hides the objects that occur above and below the substructure you select.

This feature is active in overview and detail mode, and only affects the active view window.

The Choose Section feature offers a different method to view selected areas of a structure. For details, see Displaying Close-ups of a Structure

To display substructures, proceed as follows.

  1. Click on the object that is the parent object, in the substructure you want to view.
  2. Click on the menu options Goto ® Display substructure.

The system changes the display.
