When creating/updating a GFX screen, the background needs resizing

Goals and Symptoms

When creating or updating a GFX screen, the background is too small or needs resizing.


Some custom GFX objects open up too large/small to be displayed on the screen. The user has to scroll around to see the whole window or zoom out/in.

See screen show below for example.

Causes and Fixes


A new screen is being added or a existing background is being updated and the size does not match what is needed or what the prior diagram's size is.


After opening the GFX screen, press Ctrl-F to allow the user to re-size the background by dragging the corners. Alternatly, go to View-> Fit in Window. The "Zoom Percentage" can be set from the View menu if a fixed percentage is needed instead.
