   * Always check the small yellow tick on first point of line object. It shows the FREE space side of line. It means you should draw walls in counterclockwise direction, the blocks in clockwise direction, pit or chimney in counterclockwise direction, etc. If you made a mistake there is "​reverse"​ option in "Line commands"​ section.   * Always check the small yellow tick on first point of line object.

 +===Finding Objects if you have large blank extents===
 +If you have inserted an xvi or drawing image with large extents, it may be difficult to find the drawing objects by panning or zooming around the drawing interface.\\
 +An easier way to locate any drawing objects is to open the Objects window on the top right-hand side of the XTherion interface, and click on one of the objects listed.
 +Except for scraps, and areas, most objects will be selected and the drawing area will be panned to show the object mid-screen.\\

 +If you are repeatedly creating th2 files with large blank extents around the drawings and images, then it may be because of spurious drawing lines made accidentally when navigating during data collection with PocketTopo, TopoDroid, SexyTopo or the likes. ​ It may also be because of inappropriate parameters used to export data from these applications to Therion.
