Summary

Shows or hides the accelerations of the selected objects in the active view window.

Description

When you select this command, the accelerations of the selected objects will be shown in the active view window, and when you deselect this command, the accelerations of the selected objects will be hidden in the active view window.

The accelerations of the selected objects are shown as vectors leading from the selected objects and pointing in the direction of acceleration. The length of the acceleration vectors are automatically calibrated using the evolution time step. In most cases this should result in the displayed vectors being of a reasonable length, but if they are all very small (or invisible) or very large, you may wish to edit the evolution time step to improve the display. You can do this using the Evolve / Settings... command.
