Working with Canvas

Basics of Canvas

Add and Edit Nodes

Select a node on a toolbar and click on it; the node will be added to the flow and automatically connect to the selected node on canvas.

Click the right mouse button to open the context menu, where you can:

  • rename the node

  • disconnect the node from the previous one in the flow

  • duplicate

  • delete

Connect Nodes

If no nodes were previously selected on the canvas and a new node was added, you will see a blue frame around the canvas and sign "Select input node." You need to select a node to connect to and click on it; a new node will be connected to the selected one.

You can disconnect the node via the context menu.

Multi-node selection

You can select multiple nodes, see instructions, and then:

  • drag-and-drop selected nodes on the canvas

  • delete all selected nodes via the context menu

  • group nodes, see instruction

  • add the union transform to merge selected datasets
