Viewing Files in the Design Window

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 option Layout | Show Grid.
Right-click anywhere in the design pane and select Align | Grid active from the context menu.
Press Alt+G.
Choose the Enable/Disable grid ic_toggle-grid icon from the Alignment toolbar.

 

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 file boxes on the grid:

1.Turn the grid display on if it is not currently displayed.
2.Select the file boxes you want to align.
3.Do one of the following:

 

Select the menu option Layout | Align on Grid.
Right-click anywhere in the design pane and select Align | On Grid from the context menu.
Choose the Align on Grid ic_align-on-grid icon form the Alignment toolbar.

 

Zooming in and out

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