References-Elements

Many elements 'need' other elements in model that they reference.

For example, to add a Pin-Joint you must select two Points. The two Points are then termed Reference-Element to the Pin-Joint. The Pin-Joint cannot be in the model without the two Points.


To see the Reference-Elements of an element:

1.Right-click an element in the Selection-Window
2.Click 'Show element references' in the contextual-menu

A read-only dialog-box shows 'References', Element Type, and Element Owner.

Note: you can often see all of the Elements in the Selection-Window. However, in the Selection-Window, how the elements reference each other is not clear.
