Design

The Design tab allows you to customize the way file boxes are presented in Design windows.

Move & Resize

If the Enable real time dragging check box is activated, the design is permanently redrawn while a file box is being dragged. If the check box is deactivated, the file box remains at its original position while the file box is being dragged, and moves to the new position only when the mouse button is released. While being dragged, the new position of the file box is shown in outline.

 

In the Threshold (Items) field, you can enter the maximum number of selected file boxes that are shown with its contents while being dragged. If the number of file boxes selected is above that limit, then the selected file boxes are shown in outline while being dragged.

 

Grid

The Enable grid check box sets the default appearance of new Design windows. Use the Grid size field to define the width of the grid. Please note that the settings of Design windows that are already open cannot be changed via the Options dialog box, you have to use the Enable/Disable grid ic_toggle-grid icon in the Alignment toolbar or the shortcut key Alt+G to hide or display the grid for an active Design window.

Line up and Hierarchical Layout

In the Line up and Hierarchical Layout group boxes, you can enter the default horizontal and vertical spacing for lining up file boxes or arranging them in the hierarchical layout, respectively.

 

Size

The default expand height is the height of a file box when it is expanded.

 

Component Relations

If the Auto expand check box is activated, SchemaAgent will automatically expand the details tree to the source and target component when you click on a component relation. Note that the globals section in both source and target schema have to be expanded in order to see the component relations.
