The Graphics tab of the Enterprise Studio Options window includes settings regarding the graphical display of views and model elements.

Some of the settings only take effect after restarting Enterprise Studio. This is indicated by the tool.



Color View

Color sub-processes when generating a color view

Here you can set whether nested objects in a view should be colored when a color view is generated, and in what way (filled or only the borders).

Uncolor if not applicable
Objects that have no applicable value for a color view, are uncolored by default. Clear the check box if you want them to keep their color.

Filling and Line Color

Use gradient color when filling objects
By default, graphical objects have a solid fill color. Select the check box if a gradient fill must be used. The gradient fill is a fill that gradually changes from the object's base color to black (or a lighter derived color) across the surface of the object.

Gradient to color
If a gradient fill is used, specify the value to which it must change. Value 100 is black, 0 is the object's base color. The default value is 75.


Derive line color from fill color
By default, the line color of objects in a diagram or view is derived from the fill color, meaning that the line color cannot be changed.
Clear the check box if you want to be able to change the line color of objects. The command will be available (Home tab > Markup group). The option does not affect node graphics (like junctions).

Shadow Settings

Indicate whether objects must have a shadow and if so, in which way.

Draw shadows behind graphic objects
Select this option if objects must be shown with a shadow. The gray shade of the shadow can be set in Shadow color. With Shadow offset from object the horizontal and vertical width of the shadow can be determined, and on which side of the object the shadow must be placed.

Settings for Collapsed Objects

In case of collapsed objects of which the contents are shown, this content is shown blurred, with each deeper located collapse level increasingly more blurred.

Blur when showing contents of collapsed objects is on
Clear this option if you do not want to use blur for collapsed objects. If the use of blur is activated, the amount of blur can be set in Blur factor. Select Blur incrementally for each collapse level if the blur must take place incrementally at each next collapse level.

Line Curvature

Use line curves
Select the check box if line curvature must be applied to lines with one or more breakpoints.

Line Jumps

Use line jumps for intersecting relations
Select the check box if line jumps should be used, and if so, select the line jump strategy below it.
