Using this DoView model
This is a web page version of a model created by DoView* software (version 4.0). The original DoView file, a PDF of the model, or both, may be available for download from the options bar at the bottom of the screen. To open and edit the original DoView file offline on your local computer, you will need to have installed DoView software, available here.
Navigating a DoView web model
A model can have many pages. The contents bar on the right hand side of the screen contains all the pages within the model. Display a page by clicking on its name, or by using the green navigation arrows above the contents bar. In addition, some boxes in the model may contain hyperlinks to other parts of the model, which look like (these are called "page-jumps" in DoView). Clicking on these internal hyperlinks is another way to view pages within the model.
External web links
Some models may contain hyperlinks links to the web, shown by the icon. Click on it to display the external webpage.
Original DoView file may contain more information than this web page model
There may be more information in the original DoView file than you can view in this web page model. For instance, the original DoView file may include notes about any box or link in the model. This web page model includes the original DoView file from which it was created, which may be downloaded via the option bar at the bottom of the screen.
Link icons: ^ ||
DoView software can record how all the boxes are linked, for example, how a box causes or results from others. This web page model may show how a single box is linked to others (its borders shown in bold). In this case, boxes causing it are shown by double vertical lines, ||, on their top. Boxes resulting from it are shown by a rising arrow head on their bottom, ^.
