8.3. General Information About Panes
The four sub-windows of the main ArgoUML window are
called panes. Clockwise from top left
these are the explorer (see
Chapter 11, The Explorer), editing
pane (see Chapter 12, The Editing Pane),
details pane (see
Chapter 13, The Details Pane) and to-do
pane (see Chapter 14, The To-Do Pane). At the
top the editing pane is a tool bar.
You can re-size panes by dragging on the divider bars
between them. To indicate this possibility, the mouse cursor
changes shape when hovering over the divider bars.
In addition you will see there are two small left
pointing arrows within the vertical divider bars, one at the
top of the vertical divider bar between explorer and editing
pane and one at the top of the vertical divider bar between
to-do pane and details pane. Button 1 click on the first of
these will expand the editing pane to the full width of the
window, button 1 click on the second will expand the details
pane to the full width of the window.
There is also a small downward pointing arrow within
the horizontal divider bar at its leftmost end. Clicking on
this will expand the explorer and editing panes to the full
depth of the window.
By using both the top arrow on the vertical divider and
the arrow on the horizontal divider, it is possible to expand
the editing pane to use the entire window.
The original configuration can be restored by clicking
again on these arrows, which are now located at the edge of
