Odd Rendering of Causal Arrows

Post by james.m.rollins »

When I open my legacy model files in Vensim 9.0.0, it renders some of the causal arrows as large hoops (see attached graphics files). These are working causal arrows between variables. Is there a way to globally correct?

Thank you,
James

You could try rescaling the view (make it 110%). There will be some issues like this as the sketch is a new style.

Rescaling did not help. I basically deleted, then redrew them. I was hoping for a more global approach since I have very large models.

Rescaling should have moved the parameters further apart allowing the arrow to draw correctly.

Looking at that model sketch, it might be a good idea to move things to separate views. Also, it looks like the structure is replicated, it might be worth subscripting the model as well (then you can have one structure that is subscripted by AUD, DEP, OUD and OTHERNEEDS).

Ok, I see what you mean. I zoomed in and saw the arrows have handles that I can use to rescale them. Thank you for the tips to better manage the visual space.
