Show Element References


View References

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

For example, a Pin-Joint 'needs' two Points. It must 'reference' these other two Points.

They are called 'Reference Elements'.

To see the Reference Elements that an element needs:

1.Right-click an element in the Selection-Window
2.Click 'Show element reference' 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, how the elements reference each other is not clear.
