The Navigator visualizes relationships and connections of a certain Single Element with other Elements. All connected Elements are displayed in groups according to their type. 

All elements are colored in their default type coloring. Additionally, sub-trees can be opened/closed to expand/collapse the diagram from any element displayed. The root element can not be collapsed.


There are three ways the Navigator Diagram can be opened:

  1. From the Visualize panel

  2. From List view

  3. From Single Element view
