Maintain Size Tool Properties

The Maintain Size tool lets you retain the visual scale of elements as you move them in the Z-axis in the Side or Top views. As you move drawing layers on the Z-axis, they are scaled to preserve their size in the camera.

Maintain Size Tool Properties

Selection Mode

Allows you to choose the method to visually select multiple elements:

  • Lasso: Allows you to select multiple elements by drawing a lasso around them with your mouse.
  • Marquee: Allows you to select multiple elements by drawing a rectangle around them. This is faster, as you only need to drag your mouse from one corner of the rectangle to its opposite corner, but it may not be as precise as you want.
TIP You can press and hold the Alt key to temporarily use the other selection mode.

Peg Selection Mode

Lets you switch between selecting peg and drawing layers. Select this option to select peg layers. Deselect this option to select drawing layers.
