Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
It is a difficult problem to detect invalid nesting of volumes, in general. Geant4 has chosen to not routinely attempt to check. You can, however, perform such checks yourself -- see the User's Guide.
In my program, which has only a limited set of Geant4's abilities, I have chosen to automatically verify that the geometry hierarchy is valid by testing a few hundred points on the surface of each volume, checking that each is inside its parent volume and outside every sibling volume (with a tolerance of 2 microns). The points on the surface are selected to probe the "corners" first, and then be placed randomly on the faces of the volume's surface. This is not perfect, but it does find >99% of all errors.
For systems with thousands of volumes this will take a long time....
