Patchwork Explorer Community 2022 X5

Loading Multiple Products Simultaneously

Patchwork Explorer is designed to explore multiple products and multiple databases at the same time. You can either load different products in separate viewports in order to compare them or if you are using the license option "Layout," load multiple products in the same viewport to create a layout.

The products are available in the Viewport Manager as soon as a database is opened. You can also add products from other databases thanks to the multi-KDR mode.

Loading Multiple Products in Separate Viewports

Access: View Manager window > Drag and drop

When launched, Patchwork Explorer shows a single viewport. However, up to four viewports and several viewport distributions are available. In order to load multiple products, each in its own viewport, change your viewport configuration. Refer to the chapter Viewport Configuration for more information.

Drag and drop the product that you want to load onto the desired viewport. You can also load a product in the active viewport by double-clicking.


You can link viewports (see the chapter on Linking Viewports) to synchronize the manipulation of the products in the linked viewports.
