Element Selection

Automatic Cursor Selection Of Diagram Elements

When a diagram displays a lot of elements (components, functions, edges...) it can be fastidious to select some of them to apply a specific styling or other.

That's why, two selection modes are available with the mouse cursor:

  1. From the left to the right: to select the elements contained in the selection area (Figure 1). (for example if you want to select all ports of a component on the same side without selecting the exchanges or the component itself.)
  2. From the right to the left: to select the elements contained in the selection area AND also those which cross it (Figure 2). (for example if you want to select exchanges without their ports.)

Connectors Selection

Connectors can be selected one by one. As it can be fastidious to select all the connectors of a diagram one by one, to change the routing style or remove bend point for example, use the button Select All Connectors on the diagram menu instead.
