  • Highlight Input Highlight Input : When activated, an orange-dashed box will be drawn for the nodes used as input to create the view.

  • Adjust Zoom Automatically Adjust Zoom Automatically : When activated, the view will automatically zoom in or out when the its size changes in order to try to fit as much as possible its content to the available size.

  • Use Antialiasing Use Antialiasing : When activated, the edges will look smoother and better defined, however, it is recommended to deactivate this option when running Sonargraph on low-end hardware.

  • Show Only Dependencies Of Selected Nodes Show Only Dependencies Of Selected Nodes : When this option is activated, only the incoming and outgoing arcs of the selected elements will be shown, the rest will be hidden. If there is no selection, all arcs will be shown.

  • Show Only Violations Show Only Violations : When this option is activated, only arcs containing architecture violations are shown. If all underlying parser dependencies of the arc are violations, then the arc will remain unchanged. If the arc has both violating and non-violating parser dependencies, it will change from yellow to red and the width will be adjusted with the weight of the violating dependencies.

  • Hide Self Arcs Highlight Input : When activated, edges whose from and to end-points are the same node will be removed from the view.

  • Auto Expand Highlight Input : When activated, expand operations that result in the expanded node having only one child will cause this single child to be expanded. This will happen recursively until at least 2 children are found or there are no more elements to expand.
