Options toolbar

Options 

N/A

Click to open the Options menu. Each table contains different options under this button. Below are the meanings of all available options:

  • Show Full Paths – displays the full paths of elements (where owner information can be displayed).
  • Save Filter Criteria – keeps the filter criteria unchanged after reloading the project or after restarting MagicDraw.
  • Show Detailed Column Name – in a generic table, shows property group and/or stereotype names in the table header. This is helpful when the table displays several columns with the same name. In a metric table, it shows the names of metric suites in column headers but it works when the metric table represents the metrics of two or more metric suites. In an instance table, it shows classifier names in column headers.
  • Strip Multiline Text – strips the text that covers more than five rows. Three dots will be added at the end of the stripped text.
  • Show Column Type – in a metric table, shows types of metric and parameter values in column headers. For example, Blocks Count : Integer. In an instance table, it shows types of slot values in column headers. For example, Year : Integer or Boat.Beam : String.
  • Show Column Icons - shows icons in the column headers
  • Show Abbreviation in Column Type – in a metric table, shows abbreviations of metric or parameter names in column headers, if they are specified.
  • Show Units on Values - in an instance table, shows unit symbols next to values.
  • Show Units on Columns - in an instance table, it shows unit symbols in column headers.
  • Display Mode - allows selection of one of the following data visualization options:

Complete tree - displays elements hierarchically with all their owners in the column header.
Compact tree - displays elements hierarchically with their direct and common owners in the column header.
List - displays elements in plain list.

  • Use Acronyms - recognizes acronyms everywhere in the text. Only capitalized terms are recognized as acronyms. Lowercase words are not interpreted as acronyms.
