Multi-View and Multi-Graph
uDraw(Graph) has built-in support for multi-view and multi-graph.
With these features, one can work on the same graph in different
coupled windows (views) or load many graphs in several uncoupled
windows at the same time.
The user is able to open an additional view of a graph from any
base window by using menu
View/Open New View.
This opens a second coupled window showing the same graph.
Interactions in one view of the graph (e.g. fine-tuning) always
manipulates the other views, too.
One exception is the scale, so each view may have its own scale.
The current fine-tuning mode is also set independently for each view.
A special view with additional functionality is the survey view
which can be opened from any base window (called detail view)
View/Open Survey View.
A survey view shows the graph of the detail view in a reduced
scale so it is completely visible, even if the window
size is changed for the survey view.
The visible area of the graph in the detail view is visualized
in the survey view with a continuously updated blue rectangle.
When the user selects a node in the survey view, uDraw(Graph)
scrolls to this node in the detail view smoothly with animation.
If not desired, this behavior can be switched off in dialog
by deselecting checkbox "On selection in Survey View".
The blue rectangle can also be moved with the mouse directly.
A second, independent graph can be loaded with menu
in each view.
The new graph is only displayed in the view where the load
operation was triggered and not in the other views.
So technically, a view of a graph is disconnected from the
other views of the same graph as soon as a new graph is loaded
For example, when you have only one window (i.e. no views) and
would like to visualize a second graph simultaneously, then open
a view to get a second window and load the new graph there.
The maximal number of opened base windows in uDraw(Graph) for
multi-view and multi-graph is 64.
technical information about the multi-modes
can be found in the application programming interface reference.
