Rectangle Tool

The Rectangle Tool can be used to create rectangles or squares within a drawing. To use the tool, simply select it and then use a Touch/Drag gesture combination at the point in the Drawing Canvas where one of the bounding corners of the rectangle or square should be. Then drag in any direction and release the Touch action where the other bounding corner should reside on the Drawing Canvas.

Using the Rectangle Tool in conjunction with the Function Key Feature allows for the creation of perfect squares by constraining the width and the height of the created object to equal values. In the example below, a square that is 2 inches in height and width has been created:

Note: A rectangle can also contain text. See the Handling Text section for additional details.
