Standard Shapes

The second collection of four buttons on the main window consist of the standard shapes of a Box, Ellipse, Polygon, and a Beziergon.

The next group of five buttons are line drawing tools consisting of a Line, Arc, Zigzagline, Polyline and Bezierline.

The final button allows you to import graphics from other applications.

Double click the left mouse button on the tool button to set the object defaults for that object (not all objects have defaults).

Objects from the various sheets may also offer object defaults.
