Diagrams are composed of objects, nodes and the relationships between them. If no object is added to the Objects menu then all objects are displayed which is the default when the Diagrams → Network page is opened. If all objects are displayed, the objects are grouped into smaller groups (clouds) for better visibility. You can double click the object group to explore further.

After editing the layout, you can save the changes as the default by using the floppy disk icon at the top left corner of a particular object (see below).

The user can filter connection protocols between devices of the second and third layer of ISO OSI by using filters in the Protocols menu.
It is possible to use predefined filters or a filter according to your own specific requirements. Predefined filters can be selected from the drop-down menu.
Individual protocols can be show (show them on the diagram), fade (show them but without any description in grey) or hide (do not show them).
Link grouping means that protocols of the specific layer are not shown as separate lines but together as a single line.
Layer Grouping collapses groups of devices according to the types of links that connect these, either in Layer 2 or 3 groups. Devices connected with different layer protocols can't be grouped together.
All filters can be turned off using Ignore filters checkbox.
After clicking on the device, it is possible to obtain additional information about it and the protocols used on this device.
