Adding support structure manually, do you use the RED circle?

Good morning, with the new Target type circle in the manual support software, trying to get the best position for each support.
Do other users use the RED circle target to position supports. Is there any information in Formlabs articles for how to use this feature?

Hi @chrisjdraw,

You can see a demo and explanation here: Supporting a model in PreForm. In general, the red circle shows the radius of supports to be added when holding and moving the mouse. If you’d like to place individual touchpoints, just clicking once without holding will do the trick.

Jesse. Thank you I just wondered if the circle was a recommendation to space the support in its vicinity.

Thanks all good here
All the best Chris
