Layout editor tip

Postby icmike5 » Tue Feb 22, 2011 8:26 pm

You Pro's already know this but...

It's sometimes hard to get any of the display boxes (game list indicator, emulator name, artwork, etc..) to fit when just using the mouse.
First size it then put it close to where you want it, then hit the up, down, left, right keys. Some fancy graphic editors like AutoCAD have this function called "micro move".

It was nice of the developers to put this very useful function in.

Yeh I agree, very handy feature. I use it with every layout.

If that is not an option (ie no keyboard) you can also use the spinners in the properties dialog for the widget to achieve the same kind of movement with the mouse.
