    Stencil question

    If this has been answered elsewhere, my apologies. I've read everything I could, and either couldn't find it, or overlooked it.
    I figured out how to create a stencil.
    Problem is - if I transform a large object/area to a stencil, it becomes much, much smaller as a stencil.

    Am I missing a step somewhere, or is there a way to alter the size of a stencil?

    Thanks.

    Use zoom. Press z (or select via menu). When cursor is over stencil you can alter size by click-dragging it. DoodLS

    I figured there had to be a way.

    Thanks

    I was dying to know how to size stencils too. Is there an online manual that lists this and other commands that I might have missed?

    Since posting my earlier question, I found the manual. It's in your program files/ambient/ resources folder.

    Plus, I discovered that with AR open, if you hit your F1 key - it brings up all the commands.

    The magnifying glass icon will let
    you change the size of stencils also

    Cick on it then go to the stencil with your
    curser and drag it to any size you like.
