Disabling the SpeedPak Graphics Circle

You can disable the SpeedPak graphics circle so that the geometry in the region surrounding the pointer remains visible even if it is not selectable.

To enable or disable the SpeedPak graphics circle:

  • Do one of the following:
    • Click Tools > Options > Display/Selection and select or clear Display SpeedPak graphics circle.
    • Press Alt + S.

    When the graphics circle is on, only selectable geometry is visible in the region surrounding the pointer.

    When the graphics circle is off, all geometry in the region surrounding the pointer remains visible. If the pointer is over a SpeedPak entity that is not selectable, the pointer changes to pointer_SpeedPak_graphics_circle_off.png.
