The Home tab includes the basic functions to create new project, open existing projects, set default project options, and perform basic editing and searching to the project.
|New Project||Create a new project||Delete||Deletes selections|
|Open Project||Opens an existing project||Undo||Removes the last action|
|Save Project||Save the current project||Redo||Repeats the last action|
|Save Project As||Saves the current project under a different name||Edit History||Displays list of actions performed by the modeler(s)|
|Copy||Copies the selection to the clip-board||Find||Locates a specific object by ID or name|
|Cut||Extracts the selection to the clipboard||Windows||Provided dropdown for selection of windows to be displayed|
|Paste||Pastes copied or cut hydrologic objects||Options||Access window to define general settings details such as Unit and Precision|
In the Windows drop-down list, you can manage the window and panels that you want to display or hide from the main interface.
Click the Options button. In the pop-up window, use General and GIS tab to set defaults for GIS system, unit, and auto-save.
|Project Type||The default project type when creating a new project.|
|Schematic View||Select Yes, the tab of Schematic View will show when creating or opening a project. Select No, the tab of Schematic View will not show when creating or opening a project.|
|Unit||The default unit system type when creating a new project. VO-SWMM supports all six unit systems the same as EPA SWMM5: CFS, GPM, MGD, CMS, LPS and MLD. User can still change the unit system type at the scenario level.|
|Result Displaying Decimals||Set result displaying decimal for each type of variables for subcatchments, links and nodes.|
|Autosave||Check on Autosave Enabled to allow project autosaving and the project will be saved automatically by the autosaving interval.|
|SWMM5||Choose SWMM5 Engine to run the model.|
|GIS Type||Choose None to turn off Map View. Choose TatukGIS to use Tatuk Map. Choose ArcGIS to use ArcGIS map. Please note ArcGIS license is required to use ArcGIS, but no such requirement for using TatukGIS.|
|Default Coordinate System||The default coordinate system when creating a new project. Please note that VO-SWMM can detect the coordinate system from the prj file that comes with the shp file.|
|Action when two polygon-commands overlap||Choose Clip to clip the new polygon when it is overlapped with others. Choose Reject to not allow adding a polygon that is overlapped with others.|
|Synchronize the glyphs shown in map and schematic view||Check on this box to synchronize schematic view from map. Please note to select Yes in the Schematic View field in the General tab of Home Options, if you want to see the glyphs on the schematic view. Please also note that it is feasible to synchronize the objects from map to schematic view but not vice versa, because the model on the map view requires more information than on the schematic view.|
