NAME

WINDOW - Change the current window parameters  

SYNOPSIS

WINdow :X[<scale>] [:N<physical>] [:F] [:Z] [:O<layer>] [<xy1> [<xy2>]] <EOC>  

DESCRIPTION

Window with no arguments simply refreshes the display. Give only one <xy1> coordinate the window is re-centered (panned) to the new point. With both <xy1> and <xy2> the window is zoomed to the new bounding box. If EOC is given by a double click, multiple window commands can be entered in succession.

The last window setting used in editing a device is saved along with the device so that the same editing environment can be restored the next time the device is edited.

If you have a drawing complex hierarchy, you can simplify the view by using the ":N<nest_level>" of the WIN command. "WIN :N0" will show all sub-cells as bounding boxes. "WIN :N1" will show all sub-cells of sub-cells as bounding boxes, and so on.

Piglet normally will draw polygons as specified in the PROCESS file. If a layer is difficult to see, it can be toggled into solid fill mode by using "WIN :O<layer>"; The filled state is sticky and will remain throughout the edit session, but will not be saved when Piglet is exited. Repeating the command will toggle the layer fill back to the original state. "WIN :O;" with no argument will toggle all layers from solid fill to their normal PROCESS fill definitions.

 

OPTIONS

:O<layer>
Toggle between solid fill and PROCESS-defined fill on one or more layers. If the <layer> argument is provided, only the specified layer fill will be toggled. If <layer> is omitted, then all layers will be toggled.
:X<scale>
Factor by which to scale the current window. Limited to range of 0.01 ... 100.0.
:F
Specify fitting the window to the bounding box of the current device
:N<physical>
Only display nesting down to <physical> number of hierarchy levels (default=3)
:Z
Toggles window to previous settings.
