This dialog enables to plot all or selected VDAFS elements or element types. The plotted elements define the “active plot selection” which is used to calculate the scale factor for plotting elements and for graphically selection of elements. If option “combine” is marked, newly selected elements are added to the active plot selection.
Following dialog shows the available options:
A type of selection must be marked. Options “Active selection”, “Set 1” and “Set 2”, mean all elements that are contained in this set (see dialog “Selection / Remove”). Using option “Select name”, a text window with the names of all stored VDAFS elements pops up when clicking button “Plot”. In this window, the names of VDAFS elements to be plotted must be marked with the cursor. After closing the text window, using button “OK”, the marked VDAFS elements are added to the active plot selection.
Plot: Clicking this button, all elements of the active plot selection are displayed in the graphics window.
Plot names: Clicking this button, the names of all elements of the active plot selection are displayed in the graphics window.
Combine: If this option is marked, selected elements are added to the active plot selection, otherwise a new active plot selection is defined.
Use assigned layer: Using dialog “Select / Remove”, VDAFS elements may be assigned to different layers (display lists). If this option is marked, these layers are used. This allows hiding or quickly showing different parts of the structure using command “Layer”.
