Abstract

The core idea is to add a semantic approach to graphical editing by structuring the graph and layering it to differentiate between elements with different role.The navigation between the different roles is done using a UI control that separates these nodes to different areas or different editing contexts (such as tabs in tab folder). This allows to Use information about the conceptual structure of a diagram in order to provide better usability, scalability and ease of use, all this as an integral part of the diagram editor.
