Customizing the palette appearance
To simplify working with the Palette
allows users to customize its appearance. The settings are saved
and applied again on next AnyLogic launches.
You can customize the way palette elements are displayed in the Palette.
they appear as
small icons. If needed, you can show them as a list (if there are too
many elements in the palette), or as large icons (if small icons
are hardly distinguishable).
To change the
appearance of the palette elements
- Hover the mouse over the title bar of the required
palette. Click the button and
appearance type from the popup menu: Small
Icons, or List:
- Small Icons - In this
mode elements are displayed as small icons that are arranged throughout
- Large Icons - In this
mode elements are displayed as large icons that are arranged throughout
the palette. This mode is mostly used when the user chooses elements by
their icons, not by their names, and wants icons to be clearly
- List -
In this mode elements are displayed in one vertical column. This mode
may be useful when elements have too long names that do not fit in the
allotted space in other modes; and also when the Palette
view is vertically oriented - in this case this mode provides the most
effective way of arranging the elements in the palette space.
Element appearance settings are defined individually for each
palette. Therefore you can use various modes for different palettes,
e.g. use Large Icons mode
in Pictures and 3D Objects palettes, and List mode in all other palettes.
