Navigating the Node View
You can navigate to the parent or child node of the selected node or selected cable in the Node view.
The Navigator is a small square window inside the Node view that displays a bird's eye view of the network. The view displayed in the Node view is shown framed in the Navigator display. You can drag this frame to pan the current Node view display.
When your networks grows more complex, you can pan the Node view to locate and work on specific nodes.
