ModelRight 4.0 uses "Content Display" objects to store and let you easily switch between your different sets of display options. A Diagram can have any number of Content Displays to let you quickly change the displayed information of the Diagram's objects (i.e. tables, views, etc). Content Display objects are displayed under the Diagram object in the Model Explorer.
The Diagrams section of the Model Explore lists the Content Display options that you currently have defined. Select it to edit or double click to select and activate.
A Diagram has one active Content Display at a time. You can activate a Content Display by double clicking on it in the Explorer or by changing it from the Diagram's property page. As with anything else, when you select a Content Display in the Model Explorer, its properties are displayed in the Property Browser:

You simply select the properties, the types of objects that you want to included in your diagram - and order them any way you want.
