Tips for Designing on the Process Editor Canvas

Tips for Designing on the Process Editor Canvas

Use the Process Editor canvas to create a graphical representation of a BPEL process.
Here are some tips for designing your process:
  • Double-click the Process Editor title bar to enlarge the canvas to full view.
  • Change the font size and color, borders, images and other properties for activities and links. See
    Setting Visual Properties and Using Your Own Library of Images
    .
  • Use the
    Auto Layout
    toolbar button to arrange process activities according to the settings in
    Layout Preferences
    . Use the
    Auto Layout
    option on the right mouse menu of any container or selection.
  • Use Make Vertical and Make Horizontal to change the orientation of your process.
  • When moving any activity or container, the object snaps to a grid. Use the Alt + mouse button to move an object one pixel at a time.
  • Use
    Zoom In
    and
    Zoom Out
    on the Process menu to change magnification of the canvas.
  • Select a
    Zoom
    percentage or
    Fit Page
    from the toolbar Zoom drop-down.
  • Use
    Expand or collapse
    containers to show or hide them. Drill down into a collapsed container to temporarily view its contents. See
    Showing and Hiding Activities
    .
  • Select two or more activities and link them using the
    Link
    toolbar button.
  • Use the
    Thumbnail View
    to view different parts of your process if it is large and complex.
  • Select two or more graphical elements and align them using the toolbar Align list.
  • Anchor a drawing label to an activity by selecting both and then selecting
    Anchor Annotation
    from the right mouse menu.
