Right-Click Shortcuts

Right-Click Editing

A very useful feature in Slide2 is the right-click editing capability. Most editing operations in Slide2 can be accessed through right-click shortcuts, by right-clicking the mouse directly on modelling entities. A popup context menu will appear, with appropriate editing options for the clicked-on entity.

For example, the following editing options are available through the right-click.



boundary line segment

Move Boundary, Delete Boundary

boundary vertex

Move Vertex options, Delete Vertex


Move, Delete, Define Properties, Assign Properties

support pattern

Modify Pattern

tension crack boundary

Move, Delete, Tension Crack Properties

slip center grid

slope limits

Modify Load, Delete Load

seismic icon

boundary line segment (groundwater mode)

Assign Boundary Conditions

The above list is not exhaustive. The user is encouraged to experiment, by right-clicking on any modelling or view entity on the screen, to see what options are available. Once you become familiar with the right-click editing options, they will become frequently used shortcuts for many different editing options.

Other Right Click Shortcuts

Whenever you are using the mouse in Slide2 for any graphical option, the right mouse button will always bring up a context menu with option(s) appropriate to the action being performed.

For example:

  • After selecting entities, the right mouse button always makes available Done Selection.
  • For other options, Done or Cancel is available.
  • While entering boundaries, the snap mode can be toggled.
  • While applying loads, the direction of load application can be reversed, if the default direction is incorrect, by selecting the Flip option in the right-click menu.

Default Right-Click Menu

When no specific action is being performed, if you click anywhere on the background of the view (NOT on any model entity) the default right-click menu makes available various options, such as:

Zoom All

Zoom In

Zoom Out

Zoom Window


Project Settings

Surface Options

Display Options

The default right-click menu will vary depending on the Analysis Mode (Slope Stability or Groundwater).
