Usage of the Info View

The Info View is a useful alternative representation of an element in a diagram which is often appealing to managers and high level stakeholders. The Info View will show the name of the element, a small Icon that signifies the type of element, additional properties and the element's notes. It is useful in situations where the audience of the diagram does not need to know about the details such as Attributes, Operations, Database Columns, and other details.

Options for the Info View

The properties that are displayed by the Info View representation can be configured to make the element more meaningful to particular audiences. The 'Visible Properties' dialog allows properties to be selected for display.

The Info View Properties dialog is used to define the information shown in an element displayed in the Info View style.

A portion of the notes will be displayed using the available space in the Info View; if all the notes need to be displayed the diagram element can be resized to provide space for the text.
