7.2.1.2 The Hand Tool

The hand tool is used to move the entire EER diagram. Left-click on this tool and then left-click anywhere on the EER diagram canvas. Moving the mouse while holding down the mouse button changes the view port of the canvas.

To determine your position on the canvas, look at the Model Navigator panel on the upper right. If the Model Navigator panel is not open, use View, Windows, Model Navigator to open it.

To activate the hand tool from the keyboard, use the H key.

You can also change the view port of an EER diagram using the Model Navigator panel. See Section 7.1.9, “The Model Navigator Panel”.
