Views

You can create multiple views to show different aspects of your model. As models grows larger, it can be difficult to keep track of everything in a single view. Additional views can for example illustrate the network topology dataflows.
Objects can be in multiple views at the same time to visualize them in various contexts.

Creating and editing views

Views are a part of your models and their layout will be saved with your model.

  1. Click on the Views tab to show a list of all available views. Selecting the middle New view button in the middle will create a new, empty view at the bottom of the list.

Select the New view and click Edit view name to rename your view.

Groups

Groups are sets of objects that can be used to visualize parts of your model as larger components with custom colors and icons. Groups can be managed in the Objects explorer and used across multiple views. You can also create Groups of Groups to have nested visualizations of complex systems.

  1. Select a set of objects, right-click and select Create group
  1. Pick a Group name, an optional description, icons and color. Select Group to create the Group and add it to the view
  1. Once the group is created it will be shown in your view as collapsed, you can press space or right-click to expand the group and show the contained objects

Export view as SVG

You can export the currently active view to a SVG file by clicking the Export view to SVG icon

This will then present you with a standard File open/save dialog for the generated SVG file.

Note If your instance is using securiLang you will not get icons, they only work for AWS, Azure and Core.
