Add rectangle to map



Is there an easy way to group a bunch of related devices on an existing map inside a black triangle?

When I try to do this by adding a "White box with black border" from the Objects group under the Properties pane, all of my existing devices disappear. Even if I send the rectangle to the back or change its Layer attribute, I still do not see my original devices.

Have you tried creating the box then setting the Layer to 0 then specifically making the devices on higher layers? Also, you may try creating the white box first. If this does not work, can you tell me which version you are running?

Thanks for the response and suggestion. When I do as you have suggested, I can see my devices but connection between the devices are no longer visible, which is also a problem.

Please try and download the newest version of PRTG by logging into the shop and using the download link there. This should have a fix for this issue. If this doesn't work, please submit a technical support ticket to [email protected].
