Below are some tips and tricks for using the preview screen:

  • Zoom bar on left hand side
    • You can change the view on the diagram by using the scroll tool.
    • By pressing the fill button, it will fill it to the screen
    • By pressing 1:1 button, it will resort to this scale.
  • Moving the placement of the shapes
    • Whilst Vizulate tries to build the diagram in the best way, you may want to move the shapes to different locations.
    • To do this, click and hold down on the shape and drag it to the desired location. This will keep the relationship lines/arrows connected with the relevant entities.
  • Options button
    • Shape spacing bar
      • By moving this item it will change the amount of space between the different entities/shapes
    • Orientation option
      • Select how you want the diagram to draw from the two options:
        • Updown - will put the shareholders/beneficiaries of entities BELOW the entity in which they have an interest
        • Downup - will put the shareholders/beneficiaries of entities ABOVE the entity in which they have an interest
    • Diagram detail option
      • All - this will show all of the details (e.g. registrations, notes, directors, etc) on the diagram within the shape
      • None - it will remove all the detail and just show the entity shape, name and relationships within the group
    • Style option
      • Border only - no colour within the shape, just the coloured outline of the shape
      • Fill style 1 - colour within the shape, but no border line on some shapes
      • Fill style 2 - colour within the shape, with border lines on all shapes
    • Key position
      • Top - This will put the key (which includes the different shapes) at the TOP of the diagram
      • Bottom - This will put the key (which includes the different shapes) at the BOTTOM of the diagram
    • Output format
      • Microsoft excel - this will draw the chart in microsoft excel
      • Adobe PDF - this will draw the diagram and print it to PDF
    • Page format
      • Landscape
      • Portrait
  • Generate button
    • This will generate your chart
