A screen display includes a path context window for displaying a signal path in its entirety apart from the schematic sheets on which the path portions appear. The window contains multiple display portions each graphically displaying a path portion appearing on a separate schematic sheet. The multiple display portions are arranged adjacent to each other to display the entire signal path as continuous. The screen display also includes a path list window and may include view sheet windows each showing a schematic sheet of a path portion in the path context window. A user selects a path from the path list window, which causes a path context window containing the selected path to appear. Selecting a path portion from the displayed signal path causes a view sheet window containing the corresponding schematic sheet to appear. The means for producing the various windows and other features of the screen display is also disclosed.
