The Sub-net shop is essentially a way of creating a macro to represent a collection of shops as a single shop in the Layout Area. The Sub-net shop can contain an entire shop Network within it, stream-lining and simplifying your shop network both visually and conceptually.
Selecting Edit Sub-Network... from the shop’s pop-up menu presents you with a new Layout area with four sub-network inputs. These four inputs are connected directly to the four inputs on the Sub-net shop in your original network. Proceed by attaching shops as required to these four sub-network inputs. The display shop will be wired back to the output connector of the Sub-net shop in your original shop network. To get back to the original shop network, select Quit... from the File menu.
See sub-networks for a complete discussion and an example of how to use sub-networks.
Select several Operators that you want to make into a sub-network, and select Collapse Selected from the SHOP’s pop-up menu to automatically create a sub-network out of them. You will see the selected Operators replaced by a single Subnetwork SHOP, and it will be properly rewired to contain the previously selected shops.
