Editing Objects

Many intuitive tools are available to select and edit objects in your landscape designs.

Selecting Objects – Before an object can be modified, it must first be selected. A single object can be selected simply by clicking it, while selecting multiple objects at once can be done in several different ways.

Setting Object Properties – Object settings are called properties, which appear to the right of the screen when an object is selected.

Moving Objects – Objects can be easily moved from one part of your landscape design to another. To move a selected object, click and hold the left mouse button while moving the mouse.

Rotating Objects – There are times when an object must be turned to face a different direction. Rotation can either be done using the Rotate tool or the rotation shortcut.

Scaling Objects – Any object in your landscape design can be shrunk or enlarged through Scaling. To scale an object, use the Scale tool or the scaling shortcut.

Offsetting Objects – The shapes of many objects can be offset to expand or contract the object’s shape while keeping its contour intact. Objects may be offset using the special Offset tool.

Mirroring Objects – Any object or group of objects can be inverted in any direction using the Mirror tool. Additionally, you can also mirror your entire landscape design.

Aligning Objects – If multiple objects need to be oriented along a line, or distributed across an area, the Align tools can be used.

Cut, Copy, and Paste – Similar to other Windows applications, Realtime Landscaping Plus supports object cutting, copying, and pasting.

Deleting Objects – Any object or group of objects in your landscape design can be easily deleted by pressing the Del key on your keyboard or by clicking Edit and Delete.

Grouping and Ungrouping Objects – Multiple objects can be grouped together for organizational purposes. To group several selected objects, click Edit and Group.

Undoing and Redoing changes – Similar to other Windows applications, Realtime Landscaping Plus supports the Undo and Redo commands.

Showing and Hiding Objects – It can be very useful to hide a certain type of object, or even a whole class of objects. For example, plants could be hidden while designing the house.

Editing Points – Every shape-based object, such as Regions, Decks, and Patios, can be modified as needed by editing the points that define the object’s shape.
