Node properties


The nodes of the components as defined in the Edit definitions dialog are also available inn the Vector Icon Editor. A Node Grid is available where the user can specify the node identification names and the positions. The points are given relative to the icon center. x is the horizontal axis increasing from left to right, while y is the vertical axis increasing from top to bottom. Well, the nodes are forced to be on the 10 pixel grid. Turn on the node grid Edit|Node grid to see the allowed locations.


The Nodes can also be moved with the mouse via the Edit|Move nodes edit mode. The nodes will move in steps in order to stay on the grid.


The node names (when Node box checked) are drawn oriented according to the Frame and best drawing result is obtained when the nodes are on the Frame border.
