Rows may be manually arranged or automatically arranged via computation.
The row order may be changed by:
The toolbar has two purple arrows for the purple of moving rows up and down.
It is frequently handy to number the rows (row numbers are consecutive and are separated from the name by an exclamation mark (!)). This can be done by selecting Number... (you can Un-Number..., or Re-Number...).
Right clicking on the matrix brings up the right mouse menu below (it is the same menu as the tools menu):
Row Editing Dialog
The row editing dialog can be brought up by any of the following:
The dialog is split into three tabs: Information, Predecessors and Successors.
The information tab is used to maintain information about the row being edited. Some of the data may not be edited 'Axis', 'ID', 'Order' (notice the light gray cell color indicating these cells may not be edited). Other data such as 'Name' and 'Parameter' note may be freely edited.
You can begin editing by double clicking or pressing SPACE. You should change cells after editing to propagate the changes to the database.
Notice that most of the tools and toolbar buttons are disabled in this view as they are not needed.
Predecessors and Successors.
The predecessors and successors windows behave identically. The toolbar and menu items allow the user to add and remove predecessors and successors, maintain node notes and values.
When adding predecessors and successors this dialog is used. Notice that you can select multiple nodes to add.
Printing Parameter Information
A new feature in PSM is the ability from this dialog an HTML report is generated from all three tabs. You can then print this using the print function in your browser.
