3DTool- icon-disappears

Hi Nick,
at some occasions (very large zoom…), the 3D tool icon seems disappear, in fact he's hidden by controls located at the bottom of th window (zoom slider and horizontal scrollbar).
look the screenshot and see how this icon seems to be placed under the scrollbar.
Best regards

Hi Jean-Jacques,

The 3D rotation tool is attached to the bottom of the object. So, if you scroll the document up far enough, the control may get outside the visible part of the canvas together with a part of the object. In the situation as in your picture, you need to scroll the document to show the 3D tool.

thank Nick, I saw that.
But I find not really "user-friendly" to break my design to be able to use this tool then to move back a layer to its previous location (not very user-friendly ,not very precise and rather time-consuming.

I'll ask the programmers to think about some alternative such as a tool with fixed location in the Inspector, or to create a tool which works as the Pan tool when you can grab any part of an object.
