You can move the room layout in the desktop of your application using the mouse buttons:
By rotating the wheel mouse button you can change the zoom of the project
When you Zoom In, you will notice that you can miss the part of project you are interested in. With the next mouse movement you can learn how to move the desktop again in order to see what you want.
By keeping the wheel mouse button pressed and moving the mouse you can pan. Pan your project means to move the desktop sheet in order to see the part of the project you need to focus on. Pan is usually useful when you have zoomed in the project and you’re missing the right area of the project.
If you double click the left mouse button inside the room layout, you will Zoom MAX the project (that’s to say that you will see all the project extension).
This is a very useful opportunity when you have Zoomed In/Out and Panned your project, and you quickly need to restore the full view of it.
If you right click in the layout window, a context menu will appear. A context menu is a list of commands dedicated to the object/entity you have just selected.
This image shows a context menu related to a corner (notice the title: any title’s context menu tells you what it refers to).
Try to practice a bit, in order to notice that the position where you right click the mouse is very important:
- if you right click inside the room, you will see all generic commands and the ones related to rooms
- if you right click over the internal side of the wall, you will see all commands related to walls;
- if you right click over one of the lines of an object, you will see all commands related to objects
- if you right click over a light or one if its lines, you will see all commands related to lights
So this is a very useful shortcut in order to get to the main commands you need to use for a certain item.
