Place Orthogonal Shape

Used to place a non-rectangular shape in which each segment is either perpendicular or parallel to all other segments.

You can access this tool from the following:
  • Ribbon: Drawing > Home > Placement > Polygon Tools split button
  • Ribbon: Modeling > Home > Placement > Polygon Tools split button
  • Toolbox: Polygons

Area Active Area — Solid or Hole.
Fill Type Active Fill Type — None (no fill), Opaque (filled with Active Color), or Outlined (filled with Fill Color).
Fill Color Sets the color and optional gradient with which the shape is filled.
  • If Fill Type is Opaque, the Active Color.
  • If Fill Type is Outlined, the fill color can be different from the Active Color.
Note: In 3D, the Place Orthogonal Shape tool forces the shape vertices to be planar. If non-planar data points are entered, the vertices of the shape are forced to a plane defined by the first three non-colinear vertices.
