We are pleased to introduce our new “Feature of the Month” format! Every month, we will highlight a new function or concept that is particularly useful and valuable for working with IQ-Software in everyday work. We will present the benefits and possible applications of the respective feature of the month in short articles, so that you can learn more about it and apply this knowledge in your daily work. Stay tuned for our features and get inspired!
Our “Feature of the Month” this time is a combination of three useful functions: Folding, Filtering, and Focusing. With these functions, we aim to help you work more effectively and efficiently and optimize your workflows.
Feature of the month April 2023 – Folding, Filtering, Focusing
Folding offers a useful way to selectively show and hide information. You can easily hide individual branches by clicking on the corresponding fold symbol in the tree view. For even more efficient work, you can show or hide entire layers at once (Ctrl + E) and hide unnecessary structure branches. This feature is particularly useful in the form, allowing you to stay organized and work more quickly.
Filtering is another useful function that helps you optimize your information processing. By filtering, you can hide unwanted information and search for desired information. This leads to a reduction of information overload and improved evaluation of information. In addition to System-defined filters that can be used directly, there are context-dependent Auto-filters. Both are provided by the IQ-Software to make filtering even easier. You can also cancel and reactivate the filter at any time with F6. User-defined filters offer a wide range of possibilities. If you are interested in creating your own filters, we recommend participating in an expert workshop. Customers with maintenance receive additional help from our support team.
Focusing (Ctrl + K) is a great function to highlight the object you are working on and hide unnecessary information. This is particularly helpful in large structures, where it can be difficult to keep an overview. Focusing can also be used in the Failure Net Editor to analyze failure effects and failure causes.
Overall, Folding, Filtering, and Focusing are three great functions that can help you work more effectively and efficiently, and optimize your work processes. Try out these features and let us know how you like them!
