What's involved in getting BioTapestry running?
What's a fast way to learn how to use BioTapestry?
Can I install the software on my computer?
Do I have to be online to run BioTapestry?
Why do I have to always accept the security certificates?
I'm not getting the most recent version. What do I do?
I'm using a Mac with a one-button mouse. What's a right-click?
How do I draw links?
How do I reorganize links after moving nodes around?
Why won't BioTapestry allow me to draw a link a certain way?
Can I change an existing link to another source or target node?
How can I make sure my links get drawn orthogonally?
What's the relationship between all these different views of the network?
Can I use BioTapestry without having to build a model hierarchy?
How do I create submodels?
How do I get colored background squares to appear in my model?
How do I build the network in a submodel?
Is there a way to build submodels without having to set up tables of experimental data?
What do I need to do to get an interactive time slider control?
I've built a dynamic model, but I don't have a time slider control!
My dynamic model just has light grey region blocks in it!
Can I copy and paste networks?
Can I move models around in the model hierarchy?
Can I create a subset submodel with all components included at the start?
What names can I use for genes, nodes, and regions?
Can I use greek characters in gene and node names?
How do I create embedded regions like the mesoderm and endoderm in the sea urchin endomesoderm network?
How do I display a 2D view with each network model?
Can nodes and links be set to values between on and off?
How can I add text notes to a model?
Can I set experimental evidence levels for links in the comma-separated value (CSV) input file?
A comma-separated value (CSV) file exported from Excel won't load. What's wrong?
What are the various zoom options?
My model has become too large to fit the workspace! What do I do?
When I click the "Zoom As Needed to Show Current Model" button, things are not centered correctly. What's wrong?
I want to see a different model on startup. What do I do?
Can I set the zoom level used at startup?
Can I set the zoom behavior moving between models?
How can I find specific nodes in a model?
How do I select nodes, genes, and links?
Can I define a tour of models to visit in a specified order?
How do I grey out inactive nodes and links?
How can I change the colors assigned by BioTapestry to the regions, genes, and links?
Can I change lots of gene/link/node/region colors at once?
How can I change the fonts? Can I change the font used for an individual gene?
Can I change the color/thickness/style of only a part of a link tree?
I have a ton of links inbound to a node. Where can I put them all?
How do I make my gene (signal, slash node, ...) point a different way?
Can I increase the size of link arrowheads and repression feet?
How can I eliminate link crossing ambiguities?
Can I change the size of the colored region rectangles?
What automatic network layout tools are there?
Are there tools to just layout links?
Why am I getting link layout failures? What can I do about it?
Is there a way to improve the result of my link-only automatic layout?
Are there any other tools to help with network layout?
My best layout is in a submodel. Can I duplicate it to the top-level model and/or other submodels?
Can BioTapestry support my form of raw data?
Do I have to enter all the experimental data by hand?
What experimental data can I display for a gene?
Are there limitations on the time units I can use for my experimental data?
What graphical symbols are available for indicating confidence levels or experimental evidence?
How do I get model images for publication?
Is there a quick way to get images of all the models at once?
Can I export my network to Adobe Illustrator?
What else can I export?
What is the format used when I export a network model to a SIF file?
How do I set up a web-hosted BioTapestry viewer like the one for the sea urchin endomesoderm model?
