Quick Info About Elements
Tips & Tricks
You may already know the ‘Center of Gravity and Info’ function, which can be accessed by using the shortcut menu of any element. If you want to display this information on several elements consecutively, you have to close the dialog box and open the shortcut menu of the next element over and over again.
For this, it is easier to use the ‘Info About Object’ function which is available in the toolbar (see Figure). Once you start the function, the corresponding dialog box displays the information of any element as the cursor runs over it. It does not matter whether it is a member, a surface, or a solid; the program detects the element type automatically and displays the respective information.
