2.1 Impacted Elements / Diagrams
2.2 Tree Browsers
The model browsers are used to display the models and their changes, as well as a preview for the merged model. For various reasons, only an excerpt of the model is shown: Impacted elements as well as all the elements are needed to correctly display them in the original tree structure of the models.
The elements are color-coded and when hovering on an element, you can examine its state.
2.3 Diagram Viewer
The Diagram Viewer is used to display the diagrams of both models. Elements are highlighted as well and the diagram is interactive - selecting an element in the diagram makes the model browser select that element, such that you can quickly pinpoint changes in the model.
There is the possibility to make the comparison of diagrams easier:
→ By Selected Element: Synchronize the selected element and zoom level of both diagrams. Irrespective of the elements location (it might have changed between diagram versions), Sync Element will center the selected element in both diagrams.
→ By Pan and Zoom: Synchronize the pan (location) and zoom level of both diagrams
→ No Sync: No synchronization
2.4 Property Viewer

You can do this by using the small buttons with angle brackets in the Tree Browser. Using such a button instructs LemonTree to prefer that version over the other. It will also respect the dependencies and additional linked elements so that the selected element will be complete in the merged model. After performing this action, elements where the user decision differs from the pre-selected decision will be marked with a little hand icon right next to them.
