ipad description of all tools

Recommended Posts

hi there,

i know there are lots of tutorials explaining AD for the ipad but there are still functions that i can not figure out because i have not found any detailed info about them, for instance the contextual options when an object is selected and you tick the move tool: About Centre? also: icons with a lock inside, or an eye, you can toggle these on and off but what is their goal?

a detailed manual with all the AD functions would help but i have not found it yet, anybode else?

‘About Centre’ is a resizing option, so you won’t see any effect if you’re moving the object. The other icons (‘Lock Children’ and ‘Hide Selection’) are explained in the Help within the app.

thank you, i figured out About Centre,

no clue what the two other options do, you say it is explained in Help, you probably refer to another source because if i select the question mark righ bottom corner i don’t see an explanation of these options, am i missing a Help section?

The question mark icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the workspace only reveals the tooltips. To access the Help, you need to tap on the arrow in the top left-hand corner to go to the Home screen, and then tap on the question mark between the ‘plus’ and gearwheel icons.
