WINDOW - Change the current window parameters
WINdow :X[<scale>] [:N<physical>] [:F] [:Z] [:O<layer>] [<xy1> [<xy2>]] <EOC>
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.
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.
Factor by which to scale the current window. Limited to range
of 0.01 ... 100.0.
Specify fitting the window to the bounding box of the current device
Only display nesting down to <physical> number of hierarchy levels (default=3)
Toggles window to previous settings.
