Hierarchy: refreshing the display

With Edit ® Refresh, you can refresh the display to show any changes made to the hierarchy caused by changes to the graphic by other users or by your own Data Modeler calls. The new display corresponds to the current state in the database.

Hierarchy: expanding a sub-tree

If you wish to see any objects located under a submodel (that is, objects assigned to the data model), proceed as follows:

  1. Position the cursor on the name of the data model.
  2. Select Edit ® Expand sub-tree.

Alternatively, you can click on the symbol to the left of the data model name.

Hierarchy: compressing a sub-tree

If you do not wish to see the objects located under a submodel (that is, objects assigned to the data model), proceed as follows:

  1. Position the cursor on the name of the data model.
  2. Select Edit ® Compress sub-tree.

Alternatively, you can click on the symbol to the left of the data model name.

Hierarchy: setting the focus

If you wish another data model to become the root of the display, so that you can display or edit the objects located underneath, proceed as follows:

  1. Position the cursor on the data model which is to become the new root of the display.
  2. Select Edit ® Set focus.

Above the new display, the path from the root of the previous display is shown.

You can turn it into the root of the display by double-clicking on one of the path definitions.
