The Focus Window

The Focus window is a valuable tool for locating and examining items of importance from anywhere in the overall model. For example, you might want to identify and locate items having a particular group of characteristics, which are defined in a Model View. Or you might need to locate particular types of item that are currently active, or diagrams and windows that you personally have been working on recently. The Focus window provides several means of locating such items.
