Finding objects positioned off-screen

From Planimate Knowledge Base
Jump to: navigation, search

Objects which have been positioned outside the current panel can be located by control clicking on the object's icon in the icon palette window.


If there are any objects of that kind on the screen a popup names them and gives their co-ordinates (centre). Any objects off the screen are flagged with a '*'.


Selecting an object will highlight it with a flashing box. If the object is outside the current screen, a message is given and if confirmed, the object may be dragged into the current window area.


This enables review and retrieval of objects which have "fallen off" the modelling area due to changes in window size or positioning by model code.
