Update Tear Graphics
For all links that have an associated PipeTear for recycles, recreate the graphics symbol (">>" chevron symbol) on the link line for the tear. This is useful to tidy up the drawing after links have been moved and redrawn, but the Tear symbol position is incorrect.
Using the Mouse Wheel
Please also see ETip: Flowsheet Navigation using Mouse Control.
The Zoom and Pan mouse wheel action will depend on the settings on the Options - General - Mouse Tab, below are explanations for the default settings only:
- The default mouse wheel action is set to Scroll the window vertically, so rolling the mouse wheel will pan the page up/down.
- To pan around the graphics window, hold down the Mouse wheel and drag the graphics in the required direction.
While the Graphics window is active:
- Hold 'Ctrl' key down and roll the Mouse wheel towards you to Zoom OUT (decrease magnification) at the cursor position.
- Hold 'Ctrl' key down and roll the Mouse wheel away from you to Zoom IN (increase magnification) at the cursor position.
- Roll the Mouse wheel while holding 'Ctrl' and 'Shift' key for Zoom IN /OUT at the window centre (ie ignore cursor position).
- Single click on the mouse wheel button while holding 'Ctrl' to zoom back out to view the full graphics page (same as the zoom all command)
- While zoom is active, the mouse cursor changes. You can even zoom in/out and pan with the mouse wheel while busy with some graphics commands such as inserting units.
- To change the Mouse wheel action, please see General Options - Mouse

This command is used to move around and change the magnification of the active Graphics Window. The zoom command opens a floating toolbar:
- Clicking closes the toolbar.
- The next four buttons allow you to move around the Graphics Window, left, right, up or down respectively. The magnification of the drawing is not changed.
- The next two buttons increase (zoom in) or decrease (zoom out) your view of the drawing.
- The All icon zooms to fit the drawing on the Graphics Window.
- To view a portion of the drawing, with the zoom toolbar opened, drag a selection box on the Graphics Window with the left mouse button. To return to the overall drawing, either click on the All icon, or click once on the Graphics Window.
