Newbie cannot understand why there is a dashed yellow square around an object in Layout. I've checked out the "show" button under "Guides" in "Display." Other than that, and inadvertently pushing buttons when I'm not supposed to, I don't understand why the dashed area exists.

If you have an object selected, it's bounding box will show as a dotted yellow line. Is that what you are seeing?

The dotted lines are in the Object button but not the Bones button. There is only one object in Layout and that's what I'm seeing with the dotted yellow line. Is that because it is the only object in the Layout and that it is a "default?"

Those buttons allow you to select items of that type from the Current Item drop down. Bones don't show a bounding box, they just hilite. The bounding box just shows you what object you currently have selected.

That works for me. Thanks Bloontz
