Element Filters in Standard Charts

If you are creating a Heat Map, Pie Chart or Bar Chart of object properties from the Packages within your model, you can refine the data that is presented in the Chart to include only elements that have specific properties rather than every element encountered, using element filters.

Whilst you apply the element filters using a special page of the Chart element 'Properties' dialog, this page is identical in use to the 'Element Filters' tab in the Document Template Designer.


Select a Chart element on a diagram or in the Browser window, then use any of the methods outlined here to open the Chart element's 'Properties' dialog.

On the Chart element's 'Properties' dialog, click on the 'Element Filters' tab.


Design > Element > Editors > Properties Dialog
