    Hi

    The default library objects appear in the preview panel ok in ObPlacer.

    I am unable to see any of the generic buildings in the preview.

    I have also created my own User library objects and would like to be able to take a screen shot and have them appear in the Preview panel. How do I do this?

    Thnaks

    Hi Steve,

    Are you using the latest version? I solved quite some trouble with the OpenGL preview of the generic buildings in that version. If that still does not work, please let me know (PS. you only get the preview after you have added the building to the XML file).

    If you want to make preview pictures for your own library you need make a BMP or a JPG image with the GUID of the object as name. If you then place that in the pics folder they should be displayed.

    Hi Arno

    The program seems to work OK now. I've got my custom library working with pictures.

    thanks
    Steve
