Scene Window

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Scene window pane contains a tree that lists all available objects that exist in the conceptual model. New objects can be added, cut and pasted, renamed, and grouped into folders. Geometry objects can be dragged and dropped to modify their ordering in the tree. The Scene window can be moved anywhere on the screen, attached to the side (or pinned to the side) of the CAD window.


The goal of the Scene window is to organize geometry added by the user in a meaningful way. There is no requirement to use all geometry present in the final SVOFFICE model.


Geometry objects are added to the scene by right-clicking in the Scene window and selecting an appropriate item in the context menu. Refer to the Scene menu for more information.


Objects can be made visible in the CAD window by toggling the check box next to each object in the tree.


The Scene window supports two methods to organize data:


Simple Mode:In simple mode, objects are automatically organized into folders alphabetically by type. They cannot be re-arranged. This is the default.


Advanced Mode:In advanced mode, objects are organized by the user. New objects always start at the bottom of the tree. New folders will be created if required when moving geometry objects to the "right" in the tree. Tools are added to the Scene window tool bar to help with organization. Drag-and-drop can also be used to arrange data.
