Idea: DataManager - Block Grouping with Comments?
  • VoteVote Up7Vote Down aknotts     aknotts November 9, 2012 3:07AM is very difficult on large models to know what is going on where and the small title space on each block doesn't really help - having comments in a block means you have to open the block and that creates a whirl of activity in a big model and you have to open several to find out where you are - can we just have a text block of various size that you can drop on the workspace to give a point without having to touch to workspace - you can just scroll down to find the one you need -

    Thanks, P

    agree. to add more to this idea ..... i would be very useful to be able to group DM blocks that belong together in a large DM workflow. The current grouping is not sufficient for this. Add a comment as described above by aknotts for such a group helps to understand how the workflow is built up.

    In the "Block content" dropdown on the DataManager toolbar you can change what is shown inside each block. Change this from "Configuration" to "Notes" to be able to view/edit the notes inside the block.

    A great suggestion ... would be ideal to be able to group a number of blocks together and then have a rectangle around the whole group with ability to put comments in the rectangle but not attached to a specific block. Ideally this Group Block could be collapsible to simplify the overall display
