Choosing pieces

catego1The right side of LeoCAD window shows a piece selection tree, topped with a piece preview window.

Pieces are organised in categories ("Plate", "Brick"...) that gather parts with the same keywords in their name. See Managing Categories? for more details.
catego2Patterned pieces (xxxbrick with soandsopattern) appears as sub-categories of the simple un-patterned part.

Tip: To unfold a highlited category, you may:

  • Double click on its name.
  • Click on the little '+' sign next to the name.
  • Press the right arrow key or '+' key of the numeric keypad

To close a highlited category, you may:

  • Double click on its name.
  • Click on the little '-' sign next to the name.
  • Press the left arrow key (once if you are focused on category name, twice if you are focused on a piece of the category).
catego3When you click on a piece in the list (it is ready to be AddingPieces added to the drawing), it is shown in the preview window. Image sized is automatically adjusted to fit window size.

You may rotate the piece in the preview (click and drag inside the window), zoom on it (click and drag up/down using right mouse button) and reset to default auto-zoom (double click)
