Accent Wizard

The Accent Wizard is used to add pre-built designs of accent strips and accent shapes. It is a great way to get new ideas for designs, or to see the capabilities of the accent tools.

To add an accent using the Accent Wizard:

1.   Click Tools and Accent Wizard.

2.   Click the Next button.

3.   Click the picture of the default accent design, select the design you would like to use, and then click the Next button.

4.   Click the Finish button to add the accent to your landscape design.

After completing the Accent Wizard, Realtime Landscaping Architect will switch to the Plan view and place your new accent in the center of your design. You can now move the accent into the desired position, and rotate it into the ideal orientation. See Moving Objects and Rotating Objects for details.

The accent shapes and strips that compose the design will be grouped by default, making it easy to move the entire accent design at once. However, in order to edit the individual accent pieces, you will first need to ungroup it by clicking the Ungroup button that appears to the right of the screen when the accent design is selected. For more details, see Grouping and Ungrouping Objects.


      Using the Accent Wizard will not delete any existing accents in your landscape design; your design can have as many accents as needed.

      To create your own accents, instead of using the wizard to add a pre-built accent design, use the Add Accent strip tool or Add Accent shape tool.
