Class ArgumentSelectionPlugin

Excludes all arguments from the selection that are not connected by any relation to another element in the selection.

An argument is considered to be connected if

  • argument.relations is not empty
  • a premise is supported/attacked by another argument or selected statement
  • the main conclusion is supporting/attacking another argument or selected statement
  • an inference is undercut by an argument or a selected statement
  • implicit support: a premise is equivalent with a main conclusion of another argument or a selected statement
  • implicit support: the main conclusion is equivalent with a premise of another argument or a selected statement
