How it works
Selecting one plant in the main window
To select one plant in the main window,
Click on the plant in the list of plants. -or-
Click on the plant in the drawing. Special considerations for viewing and bitmap options
If you are using plant bitmaps, you must click on the plant itself to select it -- on a leaf, stem or other plant part. If you are not using plant bitmaps, click anywhere inside a plant's selection rectangle to select it.
If the Show Focused Plant Only option is on in the Options menu, all other plants will disappear when you select a new focused plant.
If the Show Selection Rectangles option is turned off in the Options menu, you won't be able to see any selection rectangles around plants, but you can still click on plants as if the selection rectangles were there. Usually you will only want to turn off selection rectangles when you are working with a bouquet and you want to see what the finished picture will look like.
If you click on a plant in the drawing area that is behind another plant in the drawing order, you will get the plant in front first. If you are using plant bitmaps, this isn't much of a problem -- just click on a leaf or stem of the plant you want. If you are not using plant bitmaps, it is easiest to work with plants that don't overlap. In any case, to bring a plant forward in the drawing order, choose Bring forward from the Layout menu or type Shift-up arrow.
