Editing a Decal

You can edit a decal using the Decals PropertyManager or make simple changes by manipulating the decal in the graphics area.

  • To display the Decals PropertyManager:
    • Apply a decal.
    • In the DisplayManager, click View Decals , right-click a decal, and select Edit Decal.
  • To manipulate a decal in the graphics area:

    • Move it by dragging the pointer anywhere inside the frame (except on the rotation manipulator).
    • Size it by dragging the handles at the corners and sides of the frame.
    • Rotate it by selecting the rotation manipulator at the center of the decal, dragging toward or away from you, and dragging to the desired angle.
    The decal reference axis remains at the original decal origin, even when the decal is moved. The rotation manipulator moves with the center of the decal.
