LDCad View option

Hi
Before LDCad has created the image structure of the model, all parts are displayed with a green cross.
Is a part in the library not available with a red cross.
Is it possible to switch back so that you can only see the crosses again?

Current cross colors are:

Green: Still loading/prepping
Red: Part not found
Yellow: Render prep failed

There is no option to view the crosses after stuff has been loaded/prepped but it is possible you'll see the crosses again later on when a loaded files has been changed outside of LDCad.

Curious: Why do you want to bring back the crosses?

Hi Roland
For the following reason:

I am still from the old school (MLCad), and there it is, if one opens a model and parts are missing, there is an error message.
Eg: Part xyz.dat not found, should the loading of the model be prefixed?
So I know immediately that something is wrong with the model.
At LDCad there are just red crosses to see.
If I now examine a model for the OMR, I see at LDCad immediately, if something is wrong. That is the reason.
Maybe you could install an error message for the next version of LDCad, because once the model is loaded,
you can not tell if something is missing.

I always found that extremely annoying when like 100 parts are missing. So I disabled it by default in my own program Big Grin

But you can enable it if you want
prefs/ldraw/report missing files

Or inspect it at anytime for the current model
session/missing files

Perfect.
Thanks.

I suppose you could delete (or just move, for a reversible effect) the folder containing your parts library.
