Provides options that control the features available in the workspace.


Make Undo available

Makes the Undo command on the toolbar and menu available. When you clear this check mark, you cannot reverse commands you perform, such as accidentally deleting an object from the model.

Number of undo actions

Select the number of previous actions that can be cancelled using the Undo command. The values in this box can range from 1 to 20. The initial value is 3.

Status Bar

Status Bar Location

Specifies where the status bar appears. Top (shown below) displays the status bar above the graphic views and below the command ribbon. Bottom displays the status bar at the bottom of the Smart 3D window.


Locate Zone

Sets the size of the locate zone radius. The locate zone is a region around a pointer. The software finds SmartSketch points within the locate zone so you do not have to move the pointer to an exact position. Values from 3 to 12 pixels are valid.

QuickPick Dwell Time

Specifies the number of seconds the pointer must rest on an object before the pointer changes to a question mark indicating that the QuickPick feature is available.

Workspace Explorer Tabs

Displays a list of tabs you can include in the Workspace Explorer. By default, the Space, System, and WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) tabs are checked.

  • You can also right-click a tab in the Workspace Explorer, and select Hide to hide the tab.

  • Restart the software to see the changes to the Workspace Explorer tabs.
