The Design window offers several grid and zoom options that can be configured to facilitate an optimal display of XML schemas, MapForce Design files, XML files, XSL/XSLT stylesheets, WSDL files, and IIR relations.

 

Showing or hiding the grid

Displaying the grid in the design window can serve as an aide for properly aligning the file boxes. You can toggle the grid display on and off separately for each individual Design window.

To toggle the grid in a SchemaAgent Design window on and off:

Do one of the following:

 

Select the menu command Layout | Show Grid.

Right-click an empty area in the Design window and select Show Grid from the context menu.

Press Alt+G.

Click the Enable/Disable grid ic_toggle-grid toolbar button.

To enable or disable the grid globally at application level:

2.Select or clear the Enable grid by default option.

 

Aligning file boxes on grid

When the grid is displayed, you can align the top and left edges of file boxes on the grid.

To align a specific file box only, right-click the title bar and select Align | On Grid from the context menu.

 

Zooming in and out

The zoom of a design can be adjusted individually for each Design window. SchemaAgent provides the Layouts | Zoom menu command as well as the Zoom toolbar to this aim.

1.Do one of the following:

 

Select the menu command Layout | Zoom and then select Zoom.
