The viewport is a flexible area where you can arrange your Space Views: You can grab the title of any Space View to dock it to different parts of the viewport or to form tabs.

View controls

3d icon

Clicking on the title of a Space View has the same effect as selecting it in the Blueprint view and will show additional information & settings in the Selection view or other means.

For more information on how to navigate a specific Space View, hover its help icon at the top right corner.

The maximize button makes a single Space View fill the entire viewport. Only one Space view can be maximized at a time.

Categories of Space Views

Rerun distinguishes various categories of Space Views:

  • Spatial
    • Generic 2D & 3D data.
  • Tensor
    • Tensor view with support for arbitrary dimensionality.
  • Text log
    • Text over time.
  • Time series plot
    • Scalars over time.
  • Bar chart
    • Bar-chart lots made from 1D tensor data.

Which category is used is determined upon creation of a Space View.

TODO(@#1164): Allow configuring the category of a space view after its creation

The kind of Space View determines which Entities it can display, how it displays them and the way they can be interacted with.
