UModel Graphical User Interface

The UModel graphical user interface consists of the main diagram pane, as well as several smaller helper windows where you can enter or view data. The diagram pane serves as a parent container for any diagram windows that are open. To cycle through all open diagram windows, press Ctrl+Tab.

You can, however, move and dock or undock any window as necessary. All windows can be searched using the Find combo box in the Main toolbar, or by pressing Ctrl+F.
