The tools in this section are called Editing & Maneuvering tools. these tools are used to reshape existing shapes displayed at the count indicated by the Red Anchor of the Count Track. However, the power of these tools go much further than just editing a single count. These tools also create the transition to the count at the Red Anchor from the count at the Yellow Anchor. Typically the count at the Yellow Anchor is the count of the previous set you have completed.

For example, imagine you are working on Set #2 of your drill. Set #1 of your drill is at count 0 and Set #2 of your drill is at count 32. The Yellow Anchor is at count 0 and the Red Anchor is at count 32. Editing & Maneuvering tools will make changes to shapes at count 32 as well as create the transition between counts 0 to 32.

Editing & Maneuvering tools are always used on existing performers. Therefore, in order to make the Editing & Maneuvering accessible, you must select at least one performer on the field. Performers are selected with Selection tools such as the Pointer tool.

Click on the arrow next to Editing & Maneuvering Tools in the Table of Contents to the left to expand this section and begin.

Mike,

The Follow the Leader page of the User Guide may be of more use to you if you're looking for explanation on how the tool functions:

There's also an "undo" feature in the program that will allow you to step backwards through your last actions in 3D. This can be found under the Edit menu in the program.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have along the way. Our support staff is incredibly attentive and would be happy to assist you via phone or email.

Why is this so complicated. Nothing explains the follow the leader tool. There is no eraser to just undo stuff and it is frustrating. I have a drill on paper. I am trying to put it in just to practice and it is not easy to understand and get the program to do what I want it to do.
