Marquee zoom tool

Defines area to concentrate on (zoom). This function is helpful if you know which area of the graph you want to concentrate on.

Interactive zoom tool

Enables the user to zoom in and out by moving the mouse: Point to a component with the mouse, hold down the left mouse button. If you move the mouse down (towards you), the graph gets bigger, if you move up the mouse (away from you), the graph gets smaller. This function is useful, for example, for reading text on a graph.

Navigate edges

Enables the user to navigate across edges within the graph. If you click Navigate edgesand then right-click on a component, it iterates between all of the edges that are connected to the component (meaning, which arrow leaves or enters the current node), showing the name of the destination node each time as a hint. Left-clicking moves the graph along the selected edge. IMPORTANT: Refrain from moving the mouse when you are using this tool, it can lose focus.

Refresh layout

Enables the user to select a symmetrical, circular, or orthogonal layout for the graph. The default layout is hierarchical.
