To see the diagram in the Inspect View, simply click on a record type in the Editor:
Tip: To save the diagram as an SVG file, right-click on it in the Inspect View.
Tip: By clicking on a bit field within the diagram, you can automatically navigate to the corresponding table cell, and vice versa.
Tip: To disable the division of larger types use the Inspect View button or go to Window > Preferences > DVT > Diagrams > Bit Field Diagrams.
Note: Diagrams are rendered using the Bit Field library.
