Grid Editor - Node Symbols

The Node Symbols object in the grid editor Contents window contains the grid editor symbol properties. Click the Node Symbols object to change the grid node symbol properties in the Properties window.


The visibility check box next to the Node Symbols object is used to turn on or off the symbol display in the grid editor window. When the check box is checked, a black "+" appears at the location of each grid node. NoData nodes appear with a blue "x" at each grid node location. When the command is not checked, the symbols are not displayed, but you can still edit the grid. Some node markers are not displayed if the zoom or density is such that they are too close together. Although not all of the markers are shown, the active node indicator still "snaps" to each grid node as the arrow keys and mouse are used.
