Selection of this option brings up a heading ELEMENT INFORMATION in the right-hand panel plus certain sub-headings. Two options are available below : INDEX, and QUIT. The first gives a means of selecting the element for which information is required by its number. By default, the element is chosen by cursor.
The following information on the selected element appears:
- index number
- coordinates of centroid
- depth at centroid
- element code (type)
- list of nodes in the element
A marker is placed in each element examined. If a number of them are examined, it may be desirable to erase existing markers in order to be able to spot new markers.
