Is there such thing as to small of a shapefile to import?  Like if I have just an interchange on the highway and a little bit extending off of it?  I'm not sure if I'll be able to zoom in close easily or if it's easier to have a little bit bigger area.

It seems when I have a grid size of 100m or bigger, there's no issue, but when I need to go smaller to a grid size of 10, I can't move around as freely.

Thanks!

Hi !

Nope, there's no file size minimum and no data size minimum ( segment lengths or such ).

Try using the 'f' key to frame on the selection a LOT while navigating in your scene. I assume your camera's focus point is just too far away sometimes from the stuff you want to see 'in focus'.

ok ?

That's it excatly.  OK, I'll try framing on what I've selected.  Thanks!
