Blue Node & Tracker


i was able to place a door a few minutes ago and now trying to place another door on the other side of the wall. i select my door element, hover over the intersection of wall for temporary blue circle, or if i use Q, to appear and move to the direction of distance needed to key-in using the tracker. for some odd reason the tracker refuses to pop-up.
