Summary

This command is used to place rectangle objects on the current document.

Access

This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Place » Rectangle command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button, on the Placement Tools drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.

Use

After launching the command, you will enter rectangle placement mode. Placement is made by performing the following sequence of actions:

  1. Position the cursor at the required location in the workspace and click to anchor the first corner of the rectangle.
  2. Move the cursor - the rectangle will size accordingly - to the required location for the opposite corner of the rectangle, and click again to complete placement of the rectangle.
  3. Continue placing further rectangles or right-click, or press Esc, to exit rectangle placement mode.

Tips

  1. Rectangles will be drawn using the current DCode. Set the required DCode in the DCode field on the CAMtastic panel.
  2. Rectangles will be drawn on the current layer. The current layer is displayed on the CAMtastic panel at the top of the layers list. Double-clicking on any layer in the layers list will cause it to become the current layer.
