Resource groups mode shows the grouping of resources. Resource groups are collections of complementary resources. One resource can belong to several resource groups. If no resource groups have been created, a simple list of resources is shown.



Creating New Resource Groups

You can create new resources by selecting the "New Resource..." command from the pop-up menu accessible by clicking the right mouse button.



By selecting a resource or resource group and using the pop-up menu (click the right mouse button) you can set properties of the selected resource. Resource groups can be modified by adding new resources by pasting or creating new ones, or arranging the connections by drag-and-dropping a resource over the resource group. Resources can be either assigned under an additional parent resource (by holding the SHIFT key down while dragging a resource that already has a parent) or moved between the resource groups (normal dragging mode). You can also remove resources by pressing the Delete key when the desired resource is selected. Depending on the type of the element and the column in the view, the value in a cell can be edited by typing in the value, selecting a checkbox, or selecting the value from a drop-down menu. Note that all values, such as "Last Changed", are not editable. See also the Transfer Model Elements via Clipboard topic for information about copy and paste operations.



See the Navigator View Settings topic for information on how to define the settings for the view.
