Close/Delete Graphic Window

Command Path Graphic - Close/Delete Graphics Window

As a general rule, ALWAYS use the MINIMISE button if the pages are not being used and only close the graphics pages if the graphics window is NO LONGER required:

  • models on the pages have been moved to another page, OR
  • the models on the page have been deleted, OR
  • the models on the page is no longer part of the process.

If Graphics close / delete command must be used, it does one of the following:

  • Closes the active Graphic window, but leaves the mathematically models in the models database. (Not Recommended, all closed graphics pages are NOT saved during Project Save)
  • Deletes the mathematically models in the models database and closes the active graphics window.
  • Before closing the window, SysCAD will prompt for reconfirmation.
  • This is not available if SysCAD is solving or running.

WARNINGS

  1. It is recommended to keep all the graphics windows opened in SysCAD. The reason being if a window is closed, it will not be saved when the Save Project command is used.
  2. If a graphics window (with new models) is closed before the project save, the new graphics window is NOT saved. (results in orphan models without graphics)
  3. If a graphics Window is closed after project save, it will NOT be automatically opened when the project is loaded the next time. To reopen closed Graphics or Trend Windows, use the Window - Open Window command.
  4. If a Save Project version or Save Project As is used, the closed graphics window will not be copied over thus may result in missing graphics pages permanently. (orphan models without graphics)
  5. Closed graphics window will also cause problems during project merge because the graphics page is not available for tag name changes.
