VW2008: Reposition Ceiling Grid

Recommended Posts

When I created a ceiling grid in version 12, the grid could be repositioned using the 2d reshape tool. The handle would be near the center of the grid. I may be missing something, but I don't see this in 2008. Is there a different way to adjust the grid in 2008?

Thanks

When you choose the 2D selection tool, make sure you have a resize cursor - mode 2 or 3 selected. It sounds like the "no resize" mode is set for the 2D selection tool.

Mode 2 allows you to resize a single object when a single object is selected. If more than one objects are selected, resizing is disabled.

Mode 3 allows you to resize multiple objects when multiple objects are selected.

This resize mode change was introduced with VW 2008 not only as a safety, but for expanded control.

use the 2D selection tool to select your ceiling grid. Then you should see a blue dot near the centre. As Katie points out, make sure that you look at the mode bar. The 2D selection tool now has a new mode, so make sure you are on an option for reshaping.
