Re: Point cloud measurement in 2D viewer

Hi Jenny,

 

Yes - ribbon interfaces are generally context sensitive, so tools (including entire ribbon tabs) should only be enabled (or visible) when it's appropriate to use/see them. Since you started the Profile tools from the 2D View containing the point cloud data, that's where you close them as well. 

 

Cheers

It does not clear the 'Select by Polygon' selection though. How do I get rid of that, as double clicking elsewhere doesn't seem to work?

Works for me. What version are you using - I'm using ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 Update 1?

Re: Point cloud measurement in 2D viewer

Makes complete sense.

 

I'm not a total convert to the ribbon yet, so the confusion is my own fault!

Re: Point cloud measurement in 2D viewer

I'm running 16.5.0 is there an update I should be using?

Re: Point cloud measurement in 2D viewer

Yup:

...but I don't recall us fixing a selection issue with point clouds. Worth a try (and best tio be on the latest anyway).

 

Cheers

Ah - are you trying to double-click in the Point Cloud 3D View to deselect? That wont work. You have to double-click in the 2D View (or the Profile views, if that's where you made the original selection) to deselect.

Re: Point cloud measurement in 2D viewer

I tried double clicking everywhere, especially the 2D view! As I needed to ensure it was active.

The whole PC has crashed now (graphics card issue with VGIS), so I'll try again when it gets back up and running.

 

cheers

"Have you tried turning it off and back on again?"  :-)

Re: Point cloud measurement in 2D viewer

Sometimes you just have to say it, right?

 

thanks
