Right-click an element or the background in the Graphical view to launch a context menu that can contain the following options, depending on the item you select.

  • Copy—Copies the ID of the selected requirement or the values of the selected attribute to the clipboard. You can also copy the image in the Graphical view to the clipboard.
  • Copy For—Launches a submenu that contains options for copying reference information from the element. The options available in the submenu vary depending on the document type. Each type defines type-specific references that you can use between elements of the documents of the type.
  • Paste—Pastes the ID of the selected requirement or the values of the selected attribute from the clipboard.
  • Delete—Deletes a selected attribute. You can remove only attributes you add in the main window, not attributes that existed in a source file.
  • Marks—Contains options for creating and managing marks.
    • Next—Displays the next marked element in the project workspace.
    • Previous—Displays the previous occurrence of the marked element.
    • Remove marks—Removes the marks from the currently selected marked elements. Reapply the mark by right-clicking the element and selecting Marks»<Mark Name> from the context menu.
    • Remove marks recursively—Removes any marks applied to a selected section element and its child elements.
    • Remove all marks—Removes all marks of a given category, such as modified elements, search results, or custom marks.
    • Modifications—Applies a mark to each modified element that already displays an orange icon when Requirements Gateway reloads the project after you make changes.
    • Edit—Launches the Edit marks dialog box, in which you can customize the default modifications mark and create custom marks.
  • Navigate—Launches the source file for a project document in the default application for the file type. If you select an element of a project document, such as a section or requirement, and then select this option, Requirements Gateway navigates to the element in the source file. The accuracy of locating the selected element within the file depends on the precision of the element definition for the document type.
  • Evaluate—Launches the Evaluate dialog box, in which you evaluate expressions using an OTScript evaluator.
  • Automatically Position Documents—Specifies whether the Graphical view repositions documents that remain visible after you hide other documents.
  • View Graph for Selection—Displays a partial graph that shows the traceability of only the individual elements you select. A yellow warning icon in the Graphical view indicates that the graph is only a partial view of the entire project. Right-click the graph and select Show All Elements from the context menu to return to the main traceability graph.
  • Show All Elements—Shows all the previously hidden elements, or shows the complete traceability graph again after you select the View Graph for Selection option to display a partial graph.
  • Hide Selected Documents—Hides the selected documents. Select Show Hidden Documents or Show All Elements to redisplay the documents.
  • Show Hidden Documents—Launches a dialog box that lists any hidden documents. Select the document you want to show and click OK.
  • Collapse root sections—Minimizes the selected document by only displaying the top-level sections in the document. This option is available when you select an entire document by right-clicking the title bar of the document.
  • Expand all sections—Expands all levels of sections in the selected document. This option is available when you right-click the title bar of a document.
  • Zoom—Specify the viewable size of the traceability graph. Select this option to launch a submenu that contains the following options:
    • 100%—Restores the traceability graph to its full size.
    • Fit in page—Reduces the size of the traceability graph to fit entirely within the project workspace.
  • Create Covering Links—Inserts new covering links between two or more elements that you select in the traceability graph. You can create links between multiple documents and requirements.
  • Create Links—Creates a custom link between selected elements of two documents. This option is available in the Graphical view only when you define a custom link element for a type for added elements and apply the type for added elements to a modification file for a project document.
  • Reverse Links—Reverses the direction of the selected link that you created in the Graphical view. For example, if you created a link from a high-level element to a low-level element, select this option to instead link from a low-level element to a high-level element. You must create modification files for both project documents involved in the link and apply the same type for added elements that defines the custom link element to each modification file.
  • Force Reload—Refreshes the information that Requirements Gateway displays for the project.

Right-click the Attributes pane to launch a context menu that can contain the following options, depending on the item you select.
