Shape Tool

Top  Previous  Next

 

 

The Shape tool is used to add a number of common preset shapes to your design.  It can be selected from the Canvas toolbox.

 

 

Shape Tool 1

With the Shape tool active, drag in the workspace to

add the currently selected shape type to your design.

 

 

Shape Tool 2

When selected, many shapes have shape-specific controls that can be modified numerically in the

ribbon, and that can usually also be modified visually by dragging yellow handles in the workspace.

 

 

Hold down shift while drag-adding a new shape to the workspace in order to maintain proportions.  For example, holding shift while creating a rectangle will result in a square.  Hold down ctrl while dragging to create the shape from its center instead of its upper left corner.
