Master Explorer under Developer Tab
« on: March 03, 2010, 12:03:39 PM »
What is it, what does it do, and how do I activate it?  It is always grayed out.  I can find no mention of it in the help file.  Google searches were also fruitless.

It is used for creating or modifying a master shape in a stencil.
Take one of the stencils made available in this forum and save it to your My Shapes folder.
Open this stencil from the Stencil window.
Right-click on the stencil header, select Edit stencil.
Double-click a suitable shape, a shape edit window will open.
Now select the Master Explorer window from the Developer tab.
I don't understand why it has become a separate option, previously this window has always opened when editing a master shape, it's almost impossible to work without it.
