S T R U C T O R I Z E R - User Guide

Welcome to the Structorizer User Guide

Editorial remarks:

  • This site is yet another serious effort to set up a new and hopefully detailed user guide for Structorizer. I know that this is a lot of work, but I think needs grow fast, so I want to react to them.
  • If anyone of you wants to get implicated in this editorial challenge, just drop me a mail and I will give you access to the CMS.

The GUI (Graphical User Interface) is quite minimalist and simple to use (see image below). It is built of

  • a Toolbar offering shortcuts to features and functions,
  • the Menu, which provides most of what the Toolbar does and some more features,
  • the Work Area, which is where you create your NSD,
  • the Report List where the Analyser component (if activated) writes warnings on dubious diagram contents, and
  • the Arranger Index, which lists all diagrams currently held in the Arranger tableau in lexicographic order (main programs first, then subroutines).

(Diagram work area, Arranger Index and Analyser Report List form a focus ring through which you may navigate with the <Tab> key in clockwise and with <Shift><Tab> in counter-clockwise direction.)

Fundamental GUI layout

But "under the hood" there is a lot of functionality waiting for you to try it out.

If you find the product behaviour differing from this User Guide or some malfunction then please don't hesitate to report this as an issue (bug report). You are also welcome to propose an enhancement the same way if you think that some useful feature is missing.
