• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSX Helper shape

Hi there

I am using ADE almost daily since i am doing all the missing Chineese airports in FSX....and they are many....

When I use the helper shape I encounter the following issue:

When I am resizing the rectangular helper shape with the mouse and then leave the left mouse button, the helper shape gets some milimeters or inches bigger than what i have pulled.

I hope you can understand what i mean and if its a "fault" maybe you can fix it or explain to me why it reacts like that.

Thank you for the amazing ADE-program and hope for an answer.

I think I have seen this before - I have looked at what causes it but not found anything specific. For accurate resizing (yes I know it is slower) I would use the keyboard. Or if you know the dimensions you need then edit it's properties
