The UGrid module contains two viewing modes unique to the module.

Single Layer View

UGrid cells can be assigned to a layer. The layer for the cell is displayed in the Cell Properties dialog. The Single layer toolbar can be used to view one layer at a time. This is somewhat analogous to the 3D grid ortho mode but works for all viewing angles.

This toolbar can be turned on or off by using the Display | Toolbars | UGrid Single Layer menu command.


Symbols on Top

When cell faces are turned on, or color filled contours which result in a filled face, the symbols which are normally displayed at the cell centroid are displayed at the center of the top face of the cell. This allows them to be seen, although the symbol may still be partially obscured by the filled cell face.
