Enlarging a small area. RRS feed

  • Question

  • In an older version of streets & trips, you could drag a square around a small area and then click on it to enlarge it.  When i try the same with 2011 version it just drags the whole map.  i used this feature quite a bit on the older version and am wondering what happened to it.

  • The technique for selecting an area for selective viewing has changed slightly: now you must right-click while you drag the mouse to redefine the area to be viewed and then left-click to confirm.  Also, you can zoom in and out with the mouse wheel if so equipped.

    This is described in "Help."

  • Hi Bill,

    Yes, the feature is still present in the product, just the way of accessing the feature has changed. Do as Philip suggested in his above reply.

    Earlier versions of the software had a button which allowed users to toggle between the PAN and SELECT features. The button has been removed, and instead, you use right or left mouse buttons, depending on which feature you wish to access.

    LEFT MOUSE KEY - Pan the map

    RIGHT MOUSE KEY - Select area

    This change was implemented in the 2009 version.
