Different views of a model

6. Different views of a model...

The working view of the model (the default display when a model is opened) is where all the work takes place. Entries are added and edited, moved and deleted here. It's the usual place for navigating round, finding, printing, web publishing and doing all the other good things.

You can view your model as a read-only outline in an Aerial view by using the Balloon toolbar button or Ctrl+B. Each entry in Aerial view is shown as a single line so that you can see clearly the indented structure of your work. You can scroll left to right and modify the font size in order to see more. This is quite deliberate because the aim is to let you see how things are progressing and give you a short-cut back into the model at the point you choose. Double-click an entry in the Aerial view to return to the working model at that entry. Or just select the entry and click the balloon icon.

You can have multiple windows open different parts of the same model. Each window can contain an Aerial or working view or, indeed, switch back and forth between them.
