vrf Object Resizing Limitations

Question asked by VRFuser on Oct 17, 2004
Hi Chris -

thanks for the help.

Seemingly the objects size and grid properties only show when in panel
view...
I worked in full view (non-panel view) and the properties were not
there.

Off-Grid Move/Size:
Silly me.. I just realised I kept pressing the control key rather than
the shift
key *doh* So that shift key off-grid sizing works after all

Thanks again,
     Sascha.
