Object structure window

In the structure area, objects can be displayed as part of the tree or separately in the shape of a table in the object detail window. Via the configuration files, administrators can define which objects are shown at which places. Fig. 6 shows an object structure window and presents the following advantages of such a view:

  • If an object has a large number of child objects, e. g. a graphic directory that contains several dozens of graphics, the tree soon becomes confusing. The display of child objects in the object structure window improves the ergonomics of the editor.

  • As opposed to the tree view, the object structure window offers the option to display additional information on objects, e. g. a minimised preview window of graphics.

The object whose descendants are currently displayed in the object structure window are always displayed in bold.
