# iMOD User Manual version 4.4 (html)

#### 5.1Overview of View Menu options

The View menu contains the following options:

• Copy to Clipboard
Click this item to copy the content of the current graphical window to the Windows Clipboard. You can use the shortcut Ctrl-C instead.

• Show Transparent IDFs
Check this item to draw IDF-files in a transparent mode. The used transparency is 50% and can not be altered.

• Show Opaque IDF’s
Check this item to draw all selected IDFs in opaque mode onto each other. This is helpful to plot IDFs with different dimensions onto each other, e.g. a smaller IDF on top of a larger one.

• Apply NODATA Transparency
Check this item to draw those parts of IDF-files transparently that contain “missing” data (cell value is equal to the NoDataValue of the particular IDF).

• Show IDF Features

• IDF Raster Lines
Check this item to draw the line around each of the cells within an IDF.

• IDF Extent
Check this item to draw a single line around the boundaries of the IDF.

• iMOD Manager …
Check this item to show the iMOD Manager window (Section 5.4), this window will hold all active/loaded maps.

• Project Manager
Check this item to display the iMOD Project Manager window; this window is able to read in a runfile and display its content in a tree view. From here the content can be ported to the iMOD Manager to quickly display model information.

• Zoom Map

• In
Click this item to zoom IN on the centre of the current graphical dimensions.

• Out
Click this item to zoom OUT on the centre of the current graphical dimensions.

• Rectangle
Click this item to zoom in for a rectangle to be drawn. Use the left-mouse button to determine the lower-left corner of the rectangle, click again for the upper-right corner (or vice-versa).

• Full Map
Click this item to zoom in on the entire extent of the selected maps on the tab Maps on the iMOD Manager or on the selected overlay Maps in the tab Overlay on the iMOD Manager.

Click this item to zoom to the zoom level in the last used or saved mask file.

• Tag Zoom
This option is not available in the most recent iMOD version

Click this item to save the current zoom level to a *.MSK-file

Click this item to load a *.MSK-file and zoom to the zoom level in that file.

• Goto XY …
Click this item to display the Goto XY window (see Section 5.2) in which you can specify a location in coordinates or cell indices to zoom on to.

• Graph
This is used internally by iMOD and can not be manipulated.

• Show Background Image
Click this icon to display the default topographical overlay as defined by the KeyWord TOP25 in the selected *.PRF-file or display the overlays (*.BMP; *.png) as defined by the menu option Add Background Image.

Click this item to specify bitmaps (*.BMP; *.png) to be used as background whenever the Show Background Image is selected, see Section 5.3.

• Transparent Background Image
Click this item to display bitmaps that are used for background plotting in a transparent way.

• Show Location in Google Earth
Click this item to show the current zoom window within Google Earth. iMOD assumes that UTM-coordinates are used.

• Accuracy
This item computes the number of cells out of an IDF-file that are used to display a coloured image of the values within the IDF. The more cells are read, the more accurate the image will be displayed, however, the more time this will cost. iMOD computes the number of screen pixels necessary to display the image with the highest detail (i.e. the optimal detail). Thereafter, it depends on the choice of the user, how much of the optimal detail will remain:

• Low
Check this item to display IDF at a 10${}^{th}$ of the optimal detail.

• Medium
Check this item to display IDF at a 5${}^{th}$ of the optimal detail.

• High
Check this item to display IDF at a 3${}^{rd}$ of the optimal detail (default).

• Excellent
Check this item to display IDF at full detail.

• Layout

• Show Scalebar
Click this item to show a scalebar in the lower-right corner of the graphical window. The size and parts of the scalebar are determined automatically and will update whenever the zoomlevel changes. The location and size of the scale bar can be changed interactively via the mouse.

• Show Axes
Check this option to show axes around the graphical window. The coordinates are trimmed to most logic values. The textsize, font and ticsizes can not be changed, though the location of the axes can be changed interactively via the mouse.

• Show Rasterlines
Check this option to show raster lines around the graphical window from the major tic marks.

• Show NorthArrow
Check this option to show a north arrow (or other image) that has been assigned to the keyword NORTHARROW in the selected *.PRF-file.
