The Display Settings tab controls visual effects and features within InfoWater Pro.

To change Display Settings, go to the InfoWater Pro tab > Project group, select the Preferences button, and then click the Display Settings tab in the dialog.



Node Locate Map Extent - The value must be greater than zero and is used with the current map (full) extent to calculate the size of the graphical extents of a zoom. For example, the current map full extent: 10.0 X 16.0; node locate map extent %: 50.0 -> zoom in box size: 5.0 X 8.0. A node in InfoWater Pro refers to a junction, tank, reservoir, pump, or valve. Use the button next to the input box to set the zoom factor directly from the map display.

Pipe Locate Zoom Factor - The value must be greater than zero and is used with the extent box of the pipe to be located to calculate the size of the zoom in box. For example, pipe locate zoom factor: 2.0; extent size of the pipe to be located: 4.0 X 2.0 -> zoom in box size: 8.0 X 4.0.

Decimal placement - Controls the level of decimal accuracy when model inputs and results are presented in the InfoWater Pro project.
