A user wants to emphasize a particular portion of a map

Step-by-Step User Action

  1. User selects an edge in the map
  2. System highlights that edge, and any nodes connected to it
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the desired section is emphasized

Visual Aides

An illustration of what a map with a highlighted path could look like follows:

implementations (e.g., "current context menus can be used accomplish step 2 above")



This is particularly relevant when using the editor to produce images for publication.

At the view level, this could potentially be handled in a manner similar to hyperedges with 0-size connector nodes.  But at the model level, the semantics may be inconsistent with hyperedges.  A set of hyperedges with chained connector nodes implies a flow of signal from connector node to connector node.  Is this consistent with the semantics of a Path with multiple branch points in MiMs?

Wait, this is simpler.  We are just highlighting edges and their constituent nodes.  This is similar to the PathBranching example and should be straightforward to implement.
