Customizing Action Diagrams

Last modified on January 30th, 2017.


This section contains an outline of 'Action Diagram' only features which allow you to further customize your 'Action Diagram' to meet your needs.

Adding Parallel, OR, or SYNC Branches

By default, a 'Parallel', 'OR', or 'SYNC' construct has two (2) branches. To add a branch, select the construct in the diagram. An 'Add Branch' button will appear in the toolbar, click the 'Add Branch' button to add an additional branch to your selected construct.

Renaming an OR or LOOP Branch Name

To change the name of a branch, double click the line label of the desired branch. A 'Set Branch Name' dialog will appear, enter a new branch name and click the 'Confirm' button located at the bottom right of the dialog.

Moving Diagram Constructs

Diagram constructs can be moved around the 'Action Diagram' via drag-and-drop. To move a diagram construct, select the construct in the diagram and continue to hold down the left mouse button. Drag the construct over to the desired arrow line somewhere between the Start and End nodes. When the arrow line highlights green, release the left mouse button to drop the construct into it's new position in the diagram.

Note: Moving a 'LOOP', 'OR', or 'SYNC' construct will also move all diagram constructs which have been added to one of the internal paths of that construct. For example, to move an 'OR' construct which has an 'Action' construct on each branch, all you need to do is move the 'OR' construct and the 'Action' constructs will stay on the branches and move along with the 'OR'.
