  • I may be mis-remembering, but I thought that, at one time, I could highlight ALL shapes, then click view in viewport, and the viewport would show me all those shapes.
    I appear to be only able to view the shapes one by one now.

  • Hi Mike,

    Unfortunately this would only work with one shape at a time as the software will try to focus in on the shape in question.

    Off hand I believe this would have always been the case, however there are some similar functions in the software where you may be able to select multiple bits of information.

    If you have any trouble however, or wish to discuss further, please feel free to open a support ticket with us and we'll be happy to assist.
