Transparent Zoom

Use "TRANSPARENT ZOOM" during Paneldes functions. When constructing your model with Paneldes, you may find that you need to PICK (or VIEW before PICKING) a model entity that is not currently displayed in your current model view. If you are in the middle of a Paneldes function, then it may not be convenient to halt the command and zoom to the appropriate view.

  • You should continue with the function until AutoCAD prompts: Select Objects:

  • When this prompt appears use the TRANSPARENT ZOOM command i.e. enter: ' Z (apostrophe Z) to transparently enter the zoom command, then change your view as desired.

  • When the zoom command exits, you will be returned to the Select Objects: prompt.

  • You may then continue with the Paneldes function.
