Not sure I even have a working copy of that version George. I have 1.70.6402 or 1.76

Thanks Jon, I can live with it.

BTW. It does work in 1.76.6715. If I save the file in that, can it be opened in 1.71?

Edit. It does open but Halo still doesn't work.

Not sure - generally we can't guarantee backwards compatibility but it is worth a try

OK - worked in 1.65, stopped in 1.70. I will add it to my snag list George

Re small object 'halos' - I assume that is what is being looked at.

My ADE is - Application 01.76.6715.14291 - Engine 04.75.6712.18978

and I get halos and can adjust them as per User Manual.

George, I'm using 1.76.6715 on Windows 7 64 bit. Two things you should check. First under Settings make sure that Show Small Object Halos is turned on to see the halos. Secondly in order to see the Display Options dialogue box you need to first select a small object (either the object or the halo if you have halos turned on) with a left click. Then once selected right click on the object and the Display Options box should open. I you just right click on an object then ADE treats this the same as a right click anywhere on the graphics window.

Firstly, there is no "Show Small Object Halos " under options (version 01.71.6177.24088):



I can see the options dialog from right-click:



but no halos appear on the grid.

It works fine on my single screen W7 machine, but I have two screens on my XP machine which is what I use for development.

George,

on my setup, "Show Small Object Halos" is the bottom-most line of the "Settings" menu drop-down, not in the "Program Options".

Edit,
Ed just beat me to the same comment!
