Adjusting line heights
« on: July 10, 2008, 06:41:18 pm »
Hi David.

I am trying to build up a draft landscape using lines and shapes and giving them different heights. However, while that works OK with shapes, "Change height" is greyed out for lines. Any ideas?

Best wishes,
Chris.

Hi Chris,
You are right, there is no real reason for that. It's a leftover from a previous version where lines and surfaces were first introduced. Now that lines can be of significant width, things are different.

We'll enable that option for lines as well as for surfaces in the next update.

As a work-around, you can 'close' the line, set the height, and 'unclose' the line.

David.

Thanks David. I will do just that; cannot think why I didn't try it!
