Base Geometry Toolbox

The Base Geometry toolbox contains tools for placing and manipulating points, linear elements, polygons, arcs, ellipses and isometric shapes.

All tools in a toolbox are not always visible by default. To see all tools, right-click in the toolbox and select Show All from the menu.

Each of the tools in the Base Geometry toolbox is also a member of a "child" toolbox. When a tool is pointed to the Data button held down, a drop-down menu opens from which a tools in the child toolbox can be selected. The child toolbox can be opened as a floating toolbox by choosing Open As ToolBox from the drop-down menu.

When a tool is selected in a child toolbox, the tool automatically becomes "representative" of the child toolbox in the Base Geometry toolbox.

The following table shows the "as delivered" arrangement of the Base Geometry toolbox and identifies the corresponding child toolboxes and for each, the default representative tool:

Points toolbox (Place Active Point)

Linear Elements toolbox (Place SmartLine)

Polygons toolbox (Place Block)

Arcs toolbox (Place Arc)

Ellipses toolbox (Place Circle)

Isometric toolbox (Place Block Isometric)
