• The Plug Track functions are experimental and still being developed. Some of the earlier pages of this topic are now out-of-date.

    For an updated overview of this project see this post.   For some practical modelling aspects of using Plug Track see The Book of Plug Track.

    Some pages of this and other topics include contributions from members who are creating and posting their own CAD designs for 3D printing and laser-cutting. Do not confuse them with Templot's own exported CAD files.

One of the most frequent operations in Templot is to select a background template, and then make the control on its menu:

make_control.png



If you hold down the CTRL key while clicking the template, the menu is by-passed and Templot does make the control instantly:


This can make Templot feel more like other drawing software (and the Templot sketchboard) where selecting an item makes it instantly editable.

cheers,

Martin.
