General#

The following settings are available:

Automatically saving after a number of changes is available in the following editors:

  • Graphical editor

  • Tabular editor

  • Notebook

  • Translation editor

Autosave on Session Timeout and New Login

In addition to automatically saving after a number of changes, ADOIT also saves the following changes when your session has expired due to inactivity:

  • changes in the graphical editor

  • changes in the tabular editor (when opened based on a model)

  • changes in the Notebooks of models and modelling objects

However, if you close the browser tab without logging off, and then log in again to ADOIT while your session is still running, ALL unsaved changes will be lost.

  • Notifications

    Choose what notifications you want to appear in the web client.

    To turn on notifications when creating relations by drag and drop in the Explorer, select the option Show information dialog when creating relations.

    To turn on notifications when clicking a link that opens an external website, select the option Show warning when opening external links.

Printing#

The following settings are available:

  • Corporate Identity

    Only available if at least two corporate identity schemes have been configured. Select which corporate identity scheme is set as default for printing models to PDF and creating reports.

note

Corporate identity schemes can be configured in the Administration Toolkit.

OAuth 2.0 Clients#

Only available if at least one application that uses OAuth 2.0 has been allowed access to your ADOIT resources. The following settings are available:

  • To revoke access for an application, click the Revoke access button .
note

OAuth 2.0 clients can be configured on the Admin Page.

Modelling#

The following settings are available:

  • Mode

    Define what should happen to objects and connectors in models that do not match the current mode.

    Example

    Objects and connectors not used in the current mode can be represented in grey or entirely hidden from the active model.

  • Rectangular Connectors

    Make ADOIT draw right-angled connectors automatically. Clear this check box to make ADOIT draw straight connectors instead.

  • Bridges

    Draw bridges if connectors cross.

  • Crosshair

    Show a crosshair when modelling.

  • Move Along

    Resizable objects and aggregations can act as container objects for other objects. When you drag such a container around the drawing area, objects placed inside are moved along if you press and hold the <Shift> key at the same time.

    Clear this check box if you want contained objects to move along at all times (without simultaneously pressing the <Shift> key).

note

The ArchiMate Application Library does not contain any aggregations (but all object types except the Junction are resizeable by default). If you are using the ADOIT Standard Application Library, the following object type is an aggregation: Block.

  • Hover Modelling Assistant

    Show a set of controls when an object is selected in the graphical editor. You can use these controls to add objects to the model and to perform other actions such as opening the Notebook or generating a URL.

  • Print

    Select whether page breaks and page numbers are visible, if you have write access to a model.

  • Print (Read-Only View)

    Select whether page breaks and page numbers are visible, if you have read-only access to a model.

note

Page breaks divide models into separate pages for printing. They are displayed as dashed lines in the graphical editor.

Page breaks are defined in the print settings. When you make page layout changes before printing a model and save the print settings, the page breaks displayed in the graphical editor will be updated automatically.
