Navigating the structure

Navigating the structure

You can enlarge or shrink the structure in the
Visual Model
tab to better view the nodes. You can drag the model across the screen to focus on a specific part of the model.
A grouping of data fields shows as a node with child nodes. For example, the input data might contain the text
Tatanya Morales
, a first and last name. The intelligent structure represents the name with a
name
parent node, a
firstname
child node, and a
lastname
child node. The following image shows the parent and child nodes:
A model contains a tree-like structure. A node can contain child nodes.
You can collapse parent nodes, for example, if an
intelligent structure
contains parent nodes with many child nodes. When you collapse nodes, all child nodes remain in the intelligent structure don't show in the model. To collapse a node, click the node and select
Collapse
. The following image shows a model with a collapsed node:
The image shows an intelligent structure model that contains a collapsed element1 parent node symbolized by a plus sign.
If the input contains lengthy rows of data, you can select to view it on the input data panel in word wrap format. If you don't wrap lengthy input rows, only part of each row shows on the panel. Wrapping the text does not affect the intelligent structure or the input format. To wrap the text, on the input data panel, select
Word wrap
. The following image shows data in word wrap mode:
The image shows data rows in word wrap mode that display all the input data.
