Delete Last Point/Zoom?
SoftPlan Version:
2014

When tracing a polygon, area, etc... Let's say for example I'm figuring the area of a driveway.  I click my first point and move clockwise around the driveway, but then Oops!  I clicked a point in a wrong spot. Is there a key command to delete my last point, without having to start tracing all over? 

 

Also, it is annoying as hell that when I zoom in with the scroll wheel, it centers the screen on my cursor.  Is there a way to disable this?  I have not found a way in the help or settings.

 

Thanks -

Polygons

No, there is no backup command when you are drawing a polygon. Just keep drawing the polygon and after you get to the end use the Adjust tool to move the bad corner into the correct location.

I'm trying to figure out why you would not want the screen to center on the cursor when you zoom. I always want my screen to center on the cursor when I zoom. Anytime I want to move to a new location I roll the mouse back to zoom out then move the mouse to where I want to work and then roll the mouse to zoom in. I can be anywhere on the plan in 2 seconds. But to answer your question, there is no way to disable this behavior. It works like that by design.

Thank you Bill.  I have been

Thank you Bill.  I have been reading stuff on the forum all day and I can see you definitely know your stuff....  I'm sure everyone appreciates all of your assistance!  I'm a newbie, have only been working with the software for a few days.  The cursor thing isn't a big deal, I'm just not used to it.  But change isn't always bad.

Change

Getting used to a new software is always difficult, especially if you are trying to get it to work like some other program you have used in the past. Once you get used to it then it will all be second nature and very fast.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have. That is what this site is here for.
