Editing Objects

Open Cobalt makes it possible for you to modify the 3D and 2D objects you add to your space.

Editing 3D objects


To access the editing features you must first select the object you wish to edit.

Selecting an object.

Right click on the object (CTRL + click for Mac). Choose Edit from the menu. A purple box will encapsulate the object to designate that it's now editable.

 

Deselecting an object.

To deselect a selected object right click on the object and choose Remove Edit Box.

 

Moving an object.

Click on any face of the purple box and drag to the desired location. (Tip: be sure to click in the middle of the box face. If you click on the beams that form the skeleton of the box, you will end up rotating the model.)

 

Resizing an object.

Click and drag any corner of the box.

 

Rotating an object.

Editing 2D objects (images)


When an image gets imported into Cobalt it is presented in a Cobalt frame. Frames are designed to make it easy for you to manipulate the images in your space.

  • Moving the frame left and right: click and hold the top bar of the frame and drag your mouse left or right.
  • Moving the frame forward or backward: click and hold the bottom bar of the frame and drag your mouse forward or backward.
  • Rotating the frame: click and hold either the right side or left side bar of the frame and drag your mouse forward or backward.
  • Resizing the frame: click and hold any corner of the frame and drag away from the frame to enlarge or in toward the frame to reduce.
