When editing an EBO graphic in Webstation rather than Workstation, there is an inherent feature which allows a user to zoom in and out of the graphic using the mouse scroll. They can also pan around the page by holding down the left mouse button as they move.
In many cases however, this feature is not wanted and makes the graphic more difficult to use.

Pan and Zoom in Webstation are features that are enabled by default in all TGML Graphics
Edit the graphic object and select the top TGML root of the page properties. There is a 'Disable Pan and Zoom' option which by default is set to False. Setting this option to True and then saving turns off the Pan and Zoom functions for that graphic

Most systems have an Overview Graphic of the whole building. The user then navigates from this graphic to specific floors and rooms of interest.
If the Workspace is configured incorrectly, navigating to a newly selected graphic does not work as expected.
The overview graphic does not disappear and the new graphic is forced to open very small at the edge of the screen.
Building Operation Enterprise Server
The standard Administration and Engineering Workspaces used in EBO contain a Work Area Window (WAW) which is necessary 'space' to show a selected graphic/trend/schedule
If an Overview Graphic Pane is created in a Customer Workspace and this graphic takes up most of the screen, there is no space left to show the new object which the customer wishes to see
Note: The Overview Graphic 'Building' is now shown in a Graphic Viewer only
When the system tries to open a new graphic, there is not space to open it in, The graphic is forced to open at the very edge of the screen and is therefore very small.
General information about creating and using Graphic Panes, Work Area Windows and Panel Components can be found in the EBO webhelp, But for specific information on how to prevent a graphic opening at the edge of the screen see below.
Rather than adding a Graphic Pane to the Workspace to show the Overview Graphic add a Work Area Window (WAW) instead.
Next, define the required Overview graphic as the intial path for the WAW on startup so the Overview graphic opens at user log on.
Note: The Overview graphic 'Building' is now shown in the WAW rather than the Graphic Viewer.
Graphics will always close themselves on navigation to the next object by default when used with a WAW (this can be changed).
As soon as the user needs to navigate away from the overview page to a new graphic/schedule/trend, the system can use the WAW which will then use most of the screen as the 'space' to show it.
In this case, as soon as the link to the next graphic 'Floor' is pressed, the first graphic 'Building' closes according to its default and the new object is shown in its place.
