Adjusting Background Picture

Hi all,


I inserted a .dwg file into Plant Sim 13. However, I was wondering how to adjust the background drawing so that it is scaled smaller or if there is a way to move the background around to fit nicely.


Thanks for the help!


Re: Adjusting Background Picture

In PS12 I change the icon dimension to scale the background (6000X6000,4000X4000,...)


So far I haven't found the right way to adjust the position. If needed I modify the cad file.

Re: Adjusting Background Picture

I'll give that a try. I haven't been able to find a way either and I can adjust the original CAD file but I wanted to see if there is anything that can be done on the Plant Sim side. I'm going to create an IR on GTAC and I'll post my findings from them if any.

Re: Adjusting Background Picture

You can also edit the imported background. It is converted into a bitmap by Plant Simulation. So you can save it as such and adjust it in e.g. Paint. Afterwards you can import it back into Plant Simulation. The icon in question has the name "Background".

Thanks Gert! That worked perfectly instead of adjusting the original CAD file.
