Creating Nested Networks
There are currently two ways in which a user can create nested networks.
By importing a Nested Network Format (NNF) file. (See: NNF Network Format).
By manually constructing networks and assigning nested networks to individual nodes through the right-click node context menu. (See Nested Network Node Context Menu).
Visualization of Nested Networks
Nodes containing nested networks that are zoomed in sufficiently display an image for the nested network. If no current network view exists for the nested network the image will be a default icon, otherwise it will be a low-resolution rendering of the nested network's current layout.
