* Tip: When moving objects, make sure you don't click and drag on one of the re-sizing (corner) handles."Zoom In", "Zoom Out" and "Pan" tools

* Tip: Use the "Zoom In", "Zoom Out" and "Pan" tools (at the bottom lower right corner of scene window) to adjust the view of your scene. This does not effect objects or the camera position, just how it is viewed in the scene. Rendering will occur full screen.

* Tip: As you are selecting individual objects it is a good practice to rename them in the "Objects Attributes" Object Attributes Button editor's "General" information tab.

* Tip: You can also create a "Family" by clicking the "Edit Family" button Edit Family directly underneath the "Objects Attributes" Object Attributes Button button. Doing this allows you to give individual or groups of objects a color and a name. This makes it possible to quickly select these designated groups of objects by clicking the "Time/Selection Palette Toggle" Time/Select Toggle (on the lower right corner) then the "Select Families" button Select Families. This is extremely helpful when working with complex scenes with large quantities of objects.

* Tip: To add an object to a family: Click an object to select it then click the "Edit Family" button Edit Family chose a color and type in a name for the family. Now you can select any other objects in your scene and click the "Edit Family" button Edit Family and add it to one of your families by selecting the color of a family.
