The treeview is a tree-form view of your objects. It is always related to a projection. To display the treeview for the active projection, click on the Show Treeviews button of the Navigation Panel of the Home Category.

Each time after changing the projection, you see the treeview related to the new projection.


If you do not want to seen a new treeview panel each time you change projections, click again on the Show Treeview check button to deactivate it. This action also closes the treeview of the currently active projection.

The treeview is represented within a sidebar. Its default position is on the left hand side of your arKItect window. Since an object can contain other objects, the objects form a hierarchy which is represented by the treeview. In other words, the treeview is a vertical view of your system. The treeview lists the objects, firstly, in function of their type and, secondly, in alphabetical order based on their names. The object types are also organized in an alphabetical order. A special direction icon (an arrow) overlaying the type icon in the treeview is used as an indicator for flows.

The treeview contains object nodes that you can expand in order to navigate in the system and to see inside various objects. This may be very useful when you want to move or copy objects between two distant parts of your system. You will see later how to use treeviews. Now, let us have an overview of the horizontal view of your system.


You can close the treeview to gain space on screen. The treeview window can be reopened with the Show Treeviews button.
