Question

How can shapefile features be converted to AOIs in the IMAGINE ribbon interface?

Answer

Convert shapefile features to AOIs using "Paste from Selected Object" in the IMAGINE ribbon interface. Select a vector polygon and paste it into an AOI layer by activating the AOI layer in the Contents pane and then select "Paste from Selected Object" in the Edit box under the Drawing tab.

1. Display the Shapefile in a 2D View.
2. Create a new AOI layer (File menu > New > 2D View > AOI Layer..)
3. Select a vector feature (polygon, line, point) from the 2D View with the Viewer pointer.
4. Select/activate the AOI layer in the Contents pane.
5. Under the Drawing tab, click the "Paste from Selected Object" icon in the Edit box. (Drawing > Edit > Paste from Selected Object).
6. Save the AOI layer.
