Configure Nodes

Configure the parameters of a node with the Node Configuration Tool.

Parameters of nodes defined in the project can be configured either directly via the Nodes tab of the System Configuration dialog or by using the Node Configuration Tool, which offers the possibility to specify a node with the mouse. The Node Configuration Tool can be started by selecting Project > Object > Edit Parameters from the Project menu or by pressing the corresponding button on the Project toolbar. A further possibility to configure the parameters of a node is to use Properties from the context menu of the 2D View if the node to be configured is selected already.

If the tool is started, the mouse cursor changes and the node to be edited can be specified graphically with the mouse. After pressing the right mouse button, the Node Configuration dialog opens, where all parameters of the selected node can be edited.

Note: All tools can be closed by pressing the ESC key on the keyboard. In this case the active operation will be canceled and the Selection Tool will be activated.
