Where are the common shapes Please?
« on: January 28, 2013, 10:24:26 AM »
Hello Mouser!

As I have started exploring yours offering again & again, Iam trying to figure out ways to draw common shapes within the Captured Screenshot like Rectangle, Circle, Eclipse..etc.

In my full understanding there do not appears any button with the Right Side panel to fulfill the very objective!

Help decipher the method to draw some common shapes within the Captured screenshot.

hi saurabhdua
click the button with the yellow box in the toolbar on the right.

In the panel that then shows, under 'Shape' you can choose square or circle.
When 'drawing' the shape, use the control key to constrain the shapes to circle/square (as opposed to rectangle/ellipse).

To edit shapes (or added text), click on the button with the white arrow 'Object select mode' (this gets overlaid with a red 'o' when you are either drawing shapes or adding text - not sure why...)

Hello Tomos!

Apropos of the above response, please let me know on how to choose a "Transparent" Background while drawing any of the common shapes?

Surprisingly, any drawn shape renders a "Yellow" background by default!? Mouser should have configured this Software to render a "Transparent" background instead. :huh:

Yes just uncheck the inner color checkbox if you want it transparent; or change the color if not and set the transparency value.
