Help: Drawing Objects

Click on Tools tools to open the Tools Palette. Five object drawing tools are available:

rectangleRectangle
Inserts a rectangle into the current layer of the design, which can be repositioned and/or resized.

ellipseEllipse

Inserts an ellipse into the current layer of the design, which can be repositioned and/or resized.

Note: By default, rectangles and ellipses are automatically inserted into the design when these tools are clicked on. You can turn off the automatic insertion and use the shape tools to manually draw objects by unchecking "Insert text and shapes automatically when tools are clicked" in DiscLabel > Preferences under the Edit tab.

lineLine

In the design, click and hold the mouse down to draw a line.

scribbleScribble

In the design, click and hold the mouse down to draw a freeform scribble. By default, scribbles are smoothed when you finish drawing them. If you'd rather your scribble remain rough, hold the Command key while scribbling.

polygonPolygon

In the design, click once to anchor the first polygon point. Additional clicks will add more points to the shape. Click the first polygon point to close the shape.
