|SUI06 - Editing of Graphics|
LNSS05 - Grafiken editieren
In an SDE, the application of graphic-oriented tools is important in:
|SUI06.I.1||Input interface to SOM03 - Export, Import of Data Structures and Data of the SDE||It is possible to integrate graphics-generated with external graphic editors and then imported with Input interface to SOM03 -from the object management without further transformation.|
|SUI06.I.2||Output interface to SUI04 - Treatment of Documentation||It is possible to transmit edited graphics to SUI04 via the object management without further transformation in order to edit the documentation.|
|SUI06.I.3||Consistency between graphics and database||
The consistency between graphics and object management is automatically maintained.
Modifications of the diagrams are also changed in the object management and vice versa.
|SUI06.F.1.1||Entering new objects||It is possible to add new objects to a graphic.|
|SUI06.F.1.2||Inserting existing objects||It is possible to add existing objects to a graphic.|
|SUI06.F.2||Identification of objects|
|SUI06.F.2.1||Naming objects||It is possible to allocate both an unabbreviated name and a short name to new objects.|
|SUI06.F.2.2||Renaming objects||It is possible to rename objects.|
|SUI06.F.2.3||Unique names||When generating new objects already used object names are rejected for the same object type.|
|SUI06.F.3.1||Free text field||It is possible to describe objects by means of a free text field.|
|SUI06.F.3.2||Access||It is possible to access the object descriptions via the corresponding symbol in the graphic.|
|SUI06.F.3.3||Link||The description is linked with the object so in case the object is deleted the description will be deleted as well.|
|SUI06.F.3.4||Copying into another object description||It is possible to copy text from one object description into another object description.|
|SUI06.F.4||Marking of objects|
|SUI06.F.4.1||Marking individual objects||It is possible to mark objects individually.|
|SUI06.F.4.2||Marking object groups||It is possible to mark object groups.|
|SUI06.F.4.3||Explicit and implicit marking||
Explicit and parameter-controlled marking of the corresponding objects is possible.
Parameter-controlled marking is realized via the object name, via the graphical connection (next to an already marked object), via dependencies, etc.
|SUI06.F.4.4||Canceling the marking||
It is possible to cancel the markings of objects by deactivating the corresponding objects explicitly or parameter-controlled.
Parameter-controlled cancellation of markings is realized via the object name, via the graphical connection (next to an already marked object), via dependencies, etc.
|SUI06.F.5||Copying marked objects||It is possible to copy marked objects of a diagram into another diagram.|
|SUI06.F.6||Deleting and masking marked objects|
|SUI06.F.6.1||Deleting||It is possible to delete marked objects from the database.|
|SUI06.F.6.2||Consistency check||In case an object to be deleted occurs in several contexts, a corresponding message is displayed and the deletion is carried out only after special acknowledgment.|
It is possible to mask marked objects in a graph for a certain time.
The masked objects are not deleted in the database.
|SUI06.F.6.4||Buffer||It is possible to delete or to copy marked objects from a graphic into a buffer and to insert them at another position.|
|SUI06.F.6.5||Maintaining the consistency of graphics||
When deleting or masking objects the depending objects are automatically deleted, provided they do not occur in other contexts.
Depending objects of a process are incoming and outgoing data flows.
|SUI06.F.7||Arranging marked objects|
It is possible to move marked objects while the connections to other objects are automatically updated in such way that the proportions remain the same.
Connecting edges are automatically shortened or lengthened.
|SUI06.F.7.2||Free arranging||It is possible to arrange marked objects anywhere in a graphic.|
|SUI06.F.7.3||Arranging via grid||It is possible to arrange marked objects with the aid of a grid with selectable scaling.|
|SUI06.F.7.4||Storing the chosen arrangement||The chosen arrangement of objects in a graphic is stored so when displaying the graphic again the last arrangement of the objects is maintained.|
