Element Manager Settings

This section will describe how to set settings of Element Manager. There are only several settings of the application. Note that Element Manager does not require any additional configuration parameter to be set. The main setting you need to set are settings for element browsing and information presenting.


    If you want to browse elements in Element Manager then you need to set up views and their parameters for element displaying during browsing. You can set these parameters in «MP Element Manager. Views» dialog

    Every row corresponds to View number. You van set in this row whether View must be used for displaying elements during browsing. Turn on field ”Use?” if you are going to display elements in this View. “Scale” parameter means whether View scale must be changed when elements with different sizes are displayed in window. If “Scale” is turned off, then all elements are displayed in the same scale. If this parameter is turned on, then the field contains the scaling factor for elements displaying. When “Drawing Mode” for View is set to “Highlight”, then element is shown highlighted.
