Zoom for Railing Pattern Editor

R Muller
Booster
I am working on a rail with 1/4" thick steel components as well as larger wood components. The problem is I can't see the smaller components very well in the pattern editor. Trying to select a 1/4" rail that is right up against a wood rail is very difficult, especially with my imperfect eyesight. It also doesn't help that the 1/4" rail looks wider in the pattern editor than the 1-1/2" wood rail that is right below it.

I keep instinctively scrolling the mouse wheel to zoom in on the pattern editor to better see the detail, but of course it's not possible. I would love to have a zoom feature, or else the ability to have the pattern editor in a separate window like a profile editor window.

If you are still able to modify your initial post, it should be next to the attachment option at the bottom, otherwise one of the Mods will have the add it.

You go into EDIT your original post and then you should be able to create a poll.


If you still can't do it then I can do it for you.

Barry's fancy Mod options. What does "Warn user" and "Information" do?

I guess the last two option are particular for moderators only.

Warn user allows us to tag your profile with a warning message and we have the option of sending you a warning e-mail.

Information just gives us a little more info about the post and poster that you wouldn't see as a regular user.
Basically just a quick link into the moderator control side of the forum.

+1 It would really help on the curtain wall scheme editor as well.
