(This function is only available in course setting projects!)

Often it is necessary to make graphic modifications to the courses generated by OCAD. The common modifications made for the different courses are stored in the course setting file.


Cutting out control circles

If a control circle covers a map detail like a knoll, a part of the control circle should be cut out to make the knoll visible. You need to make this cut-out only once. It will be visible for all courses that use this control.

  1. Switch of the Preview mode.
  2. Select the Edit point select object and edit vertex tool.
  3. Select the desired control circle by clicking in its center.
  4. Select the Cut cut tool to cut out a part of the control circle.
