A checkpoint is a vertical or horizontal line (depends on the modeling direction used) in the flow chart. A checkpoint has no model element attached to it; its role is to indicate timing or phasing in the process model and to help manage the space of the view. Furthermore, a checkpoint can indicate some control or synchronization that is needed in the process.

 

Managing space with checkpoints

A checkpoint can be a handy tool for managing the flow chart space. By dragging a checkpoint you can add space or remove space from the middle of a flow chart without disturbing the organization of the flow chart.

 

To create new space in the flow chart...

Select the checkpoint on the flow chart, drag it to the down or right, depending on the modeling direction used, by the desired amount of space and then release the checkpoint. Now the specified amount of space is added to the flow chart.

 

To remove space from the flow chart...

Select the checkpoint on the flow chart, drag it to the up or left, depending on the modeling direction used, by the desired amount of space and then release the checkpoint. Now the specified amount of space is removed from the flow chart.

 

 

note

Note

A checkpoint cannot be moved to the up (on vertical flow charts) or left (on horizontal flow charts) over any other checkpoint.

 

To move a checkpoint without creating or removing space...

Select the checkpoint on the flow chart, press and hold down the Shift key and then drag the checkpoint to the desired location. The checkpoint is moved to the new position without affecting the flow chart.

 

To change the name of a checkpoint...

Right-click a checkpoint and select the Change Name option from the pop-up menu.
