Perhaps this is not the proper forum....but...

How can I delete a map from VUE?

Also is it possible to save all maps (in the tabs) as one unit?

Thanx,
L.

What do you mean delete a map from VUE? Map's are just regular files on the filesystem. Could you describe what you'd expect to happen?

We don't have a means of saving all tabs as a unit, I suspect you'd want this to work similar to firefox, where you can bookmark all open tabs as a folder of bookmarks? It's an interesting suggestion, something we'll certainly consider for the future.

As you can tell I'm a newbie..

I am using VUE to outline Use Cases

Each Map has a central node which has the name of the Use. All children of the node are questions/conditions that need to be checked. Therefore in the tool I have many maps (one for each UC represented as the map tabs). Sometimes I have the need to delete one of the maps from inside of the tool (ie. right click on the map tab and select delete).

Also I would like to save all the maps (or have the the option to ) (in my case...Use Cases) as one unit that represents all the UCs in my system rather than one map (Use Case) file.

Grouping the maps the way in which you've suggested is interesting, I think it may be a usecase we just haven't considered. What we've recommended as a best practice for this sort of acase is to have a master map, that links to the VUE files that make up your use cases. So the individual vue map for each use case would be a node in your master map. Then when you just open your master map, and double clicked the node of the use case and that use case map would open in VUE in another tab.

I'm not sure we'd really want you to be able to delete files from your filesystem from the application, I'd just use the close map function, and delete the file yourself given your favorite OS function.

I like that idea...

Have you considered being able to copy a node from another map and pasting insider of a node on a different map such that when I double click (or other) on the included node it brings me to the map from which it was copied?

Just an idea...

We haven't really considered that, individual nodes don't belong to a particular map, they just belong to whatever map they're on, so this would be problematic in a our current architecture.
