2.20. Scout Lines

The Show series scout lines tool is used if two or more series are opened for a particular study. The tool allows you to display the series image scout lines in images from other series if they are synchronized.

By default, the current image scoute line is highlighted in green, and the boundary scout lines are highlighted in yellow (Fig. 2.29). If the Show all scout lines mode is active, the intermediate scout lines are highlighted by a dotted line, and current and boundary scout lines are highlighted by solid lines.
