True top? You mean when it watches everything from exactly above as in top-down view? It works fine…
As you can see with the square exactly on the center it doesn’t show any of its sides, if you shift the cube around it is natural you will start to see its sides, because if you stand tall between two buildings you can see their sides as they go up. Shifting the cube around on this top view only moves it on the X plane, double clicking an empty space shifts the view to the side of the cube
In here you can see another side because my view is not aligned cause I rotated a bit, but same case scenario, sideways you only touch the Y plane but as well as the X plane, but only left to right unlike the top down view. Like this the arrows that would naturally be there to pull it closer to you are gone so you can click on the cube.
With just two shifts of view I can perfectly move the cube towards my target signature, usually spending around 6 seconds to hit the scan button (cause I’m chill, faster people can definitely do this in less), taking in consideration I am inputting the scan radius through the slider too.
