You can create a path browser from a graph, table, or process map.
To create a path browser from a graph or table
Dragging an element to a path browser may change the base dimension associated with the path browser, but it does not change the level dimension, group dimension, or metric. Therefore, you must exercise caution in choosing a base dimension that makes sense when used with the path browser’s level dimension, group dimension, and metric. To change the level dimension, group dimension, or metric, you must edit the path browser’s *.vw file in a text editor such as Notepad. See Configuring Path Browsers.
To create a path browser from a process map
A path browser created from a process map displays only the elements shown on the process map. Other elements of the base dimension are not displayed.
When you create a path browser from a process map, the path browser ignores the elements of the level dimension with no associated base dimension elements. When you drag a node from a process map onto a path browser, the path browser’s base dimension (named Map) is defined by the process map, and its elements are limited to the elements on the process map. As a result, some elements of the path browser’s level dimension do not have associated base dimension elements and are not represented in the path browser.
