I am running giants editor 5.5. I am making a map. (Map is 16x). I watch every tutorial on importing objects and placing them on maps many times. When I place them, i was having a tough time to view and place them in the right area. I click on the object and press f. It took me to the object but all I see is gray all around. I maneuver my mouse to fix the issue. It fix it but My map gets choppy until I zoom out. When I zoom in, the map starts getting choppy again and disappears. CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME ON THIS!!!!

Hi Jeff,

just some tips, which might help you.

To place an object:
Press Ctrl+B then click somewhere on the map (terrain) and the object will be placed on this position.
(You can also hold the left mouse button and move the mouse, in this way the object follows the cursor)

Changing the way how the camera reacts to mouse movements:
Menu -> View -> Framed Rotate
Propably you want this feature to be turned off when working on a map.
But it has its advantages in some cases though ;)
