This section provides a detailed description of the contents of the Layers and Sets window within the CAST Architecture Checker. The window allows you to:
- Define a new Layer or Set
- Define an Unassigned Layer
- Delete items (Layers and Sets)
- Hide items (Layers only) from the Model tab in the Main window
- View the Properties (name and type) of a Layer or Set
|For Architecture Model||For Quality Rule Model|
By default, the Layers and Sets window will display all items (Layers, Unassigned and Sets). However by using the View sets option (View menu) you can hide Sets if required.
The Filter field allows you to enter character strings to "filter" the display of items in the window. Filtering is instant - i.e. it occurs as soon as any strings are entered in the field.
