Overview of the editing pane

This is where all the diagrams are drawn. In earlier versions of ArgoUML this pane went under a variety of names. You may encounter “drawing pane”, “diagram pane” or “multi-editor pane” in other documentation that is still being updated.

The pane has a tool bar at the top, and a single tab labeled As Diagram at the bottom, which has no function in the 0.20 version of ArgoUML. The main area shows the currently selected diagram, of which the name is shown in the window title bar.
