Default How to display 3D text/shapes in a static position regardless of the view angle.

A library called "Display Tools.fsl" made by Brandon Peterson can be downloaded from the Flexsim user community (or see attached file). In the library there is an object called "Screen Display". Everything (VisualTool or Recorder objects) you put into this object (select object (red box) and Move into Highlighted (yellow box = Screen Display object) will be shown on the screen (view).The position in the Screen Display represents the position on the screen (view).

It is recommend to change the z position of the objects you put into the Screen Display to a positive value, e.g., 0.1, so that the objects can be selected easily. Thanks to Tom David for this tip.
