Links tab

This tab allows management of the names and styling of the link types defined for the current document. Link types can be added, deleted or their settings edited.

Link types. This pop-up menu shows the 11 link types defined for all new documents, as amended by any edits/additions/deletions made by the user.

Name. This shows the name of the currently selected Link Type. The name can be changed.

Color chip. Shows the colour used to draw this type of link line (and link labels) in map view. The default is black but can be customised per-link type.

Shown as. This is an alternative screen label for the link type's Name. If using link types in action code, it can be useful to have short simple names for labels that would otherwise be long or use accents, etc., that might be troublesome in code context.

Gear wheel button (right):

Link types now record the preferred connector type, and links will use the corresponding connector unless individually overridden.
