Property Description Entity The label of the entity. The list is sorted in ascending alphanumeric order. If an entity has no label, its identity is used. Link The label of the link that connects the selected entity and the linked entity. The list is sorted in ascending alphanumeric order. If the connection consists of several links, then the number of links is displayed, for example (2 links). Onward Entities The number of other entities that the linked entity is connected to. The list is sorted in descending numerical order. Angle The positional angle of linked entities in relation to the selected entity. Entities that are positioned directly above the selected entity, at zero degrees, are listed first, and degree position increases down the list so that entities are listed in clockwise order. Position The list is sorted so that panning between entities is minimized. You can walk through the items, clicking them to view their position in the chart. The entities at the top of the list are typically the entities nearest the selected entity.
