Each cell in the "Direction preferences for arrow styles" grid contains a compass rose for a different arrow style. Direction of the arrow (if any) in the compass rose indicates preferred direction in Watanabe-style displays. Arrow length indicates strength of preference. You may click with the mouse to reset arrow direction and length. The reciprocal arrow styles 4 and 5 are the only ones currently used in TexNet32 graphic displays.

Graphic displays

Graphic displays can be shown for any structured text that is in focus in a TexNet32 edit window. Use the "Graphic" option in the "View" menu.

Graphic displays can also be shown for word coocurrences in the source text. Use the "Graph cooccurring words" option in the "Other" menu. A "Save cooccurrence data as" dialog will appear allowing you to select a (*.coo) file in which to save the cooccurrence data. When you close this dialog, with or without selecting a file, the "Graphic display" window will appear with a display of coocurring words.

In the "Graphic display" window, use the menus or their associated accelerator keys for the main functions.

The current box is identified by its distinctive color and by the handle at its bottom right corner. To set the current box, click the mouse or press the Tab key. To adjust the size of the current box, use the mouse to drag the handle.

To close the "Graphic display" window, click on its "X" button. When you close the window, if you have selected a paragraph the caret will be positioned at the beginning of the paragraph in the original edit window. (If you have selected a word in a cooccurrence display, the caret will be positioned where it was before.)
