6.2.1 Tool independence
The first rule, tool independence, lets you view and edit the
same design information in any of the MetaEdit+ tools; even at the same time.
You can open any of your graphs in a Diagram Editor, Matrix Editor, or Table
Editor and the underlying graph is basically the same: only its representation
differs (Figure 6–1
). Because of
this tool independence changes made to graphs in one of the tools are also
reflected by other tools representing the same graph.
