Organizing Objects on the Board
Realtimeboard gives you the possibility of organizing objects on a board, so you should not be afraid of moving something by accident, or of making a mess on a board.
Shortcutting between Select/Pan modes
Try using hotkeys to switch between working with a certain object and panning across the board:
- V - activates the editor mode (the cursor tool in the toolbar). Click V to choose the cursor tool.
- Space tab - temporarily activates the pan mode. Keep Space pressed to pan across the boards without messing up the built structures.
To move a certain object, please make sure that the select tool is selected (shortcut - V; looks like a cursor), and not the hand tool. If you want to move around the board while you have a certain tool open, you can hold space and click on the background and drag to move, without using that tool on the board.
You can group multiple objects together by selecting them and clicking Group button (or using Ctrl+G). After that, they will behave as a single object (although you can still edit each object within the group):
Group option in the object menu.
Locking objects in place
To prevent an object from being moved or edited (or deleted) you can lock them in place via the context menu that appears when objects are selected (or by using Ctrl+L):
The lock option.
Moving objects between foreground and background.
All objects on the board are placed relatively on top of each other. To define the order you can use the options Bring Forward or Send Backward in the context menu:
Defining the order of objects
Using the mini-map
To navigate across the board you can use the mini-map which can be found in the right down corner of the board (Z hotkey). You can also scale the board using the mouse-wheel (or by touchpad scrolling).
