In the Explode tab, tubes can be exploded/broken apart to show each section (See the diagram below for an example of this).

While All Tubes is selected in the Header Chart, all of the header tubes will be shown while using the Explode function. Otherwise, whichever tube is selected (highlighted in yellow in the chart) will be the only tube shown.
