rulersPlaced on the left and top of the main window, rulers help precisely draw and place objects in a layout. Rulers show the current position of the pointer and the bounds of the selected objects and are dynamically linked to the current measurement unit, drawing scale and zoom factor.
Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts (Pro)
Shortcuts The new "Shortcuts" panel in the Preferences window allows you to extensively customize the key combinations used to activate menu commands and tools.
All New Rectangle Tool
Rectangle To satisfy our users requests, the Rectangle tool has been redesigned to support fills and transparency. The new rectangle is an object of his own, can be resized and edited just like any other vector item.
Line By Center
Print preview The new Line By Center tool lets you quickly make new lines starting from the line's midpoint instead of one endpoint. This method allows higher accuracy and saves time in many applications, from mechanical drawing to survey.
Line styles in Create Image
Print preview The Create Image tool already allows you to make high-impact images of your project by adding backgrounds, colors, gradients, frames and pen color attributes. Now HighDesign 1.3 lets you customize the global line style of the drawing to create even more effects, from sketch to artistic.
Hatch Patterns with Offset
Print preview Hatch patterns can have an offset relative to the global hatch origin. You can now create even more customized hatch patterns simply by adjusting the offset slider in the Drawing Manager window.
