Overlay Operations

When an Overlay is loaded or has been generated, there are several functions available to the user to modify these polylines.
To access the operation the user should select the desired overlay layer in Layer Control. This makes this layer to be an active layer which may be seen from the bold font in the Layer Control space. In the workspace a hand icon should now be displayed instead of an arrow when the user hovers over this overlay line. The user should select this polyline with LMC. Now when the user RMCs a function list is displayed as shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2.
