Link mark by Node ID

Where multiple existing marks are located in close proximity, it may be easier to link captured marks by using Node IDs instead of trying to select the corresponding marks using the mouse.

To find a Node ID for an existing mark

What to do

  1. Select the Layers icon from the toolbar on the right-hand side of the spatial view.
