Drawing Tools Overview

The options in the Tools tab allow you to add a variety of drawing objects to the Plan View, to customize the view for screen captures, measure distances and angles etc. The Drawing Tools include the following options:

All objects added to a view with the Tools tab options, are referred to as Drawing Tools in the Settle3 documentation.

Adding Drawing Tools

  • The Drawing Tools can only be added to the Plan View; they cannot be added to the 3D View or any other view type in Settle3.
  • If the Drawing Tools options are disabled (i.e. greyed out) and you wish to add a drawing tool, then you must first click in the Plan View in order to enable the Drawing Tool options.

Editing Drawing Tools

After adding Drawing Tools to a view, they can be easily formatted, moved, re-sized, deleted, hidden or copied. To edit drawing tools, you can use the options in the Tools tab, or a variety of shortcuts:

  • If you left click on a drawing tool, you can re-size or move the tool by clicking and dragging with the mouse
  • If you right click on a drawing tool, the popup menu will display applicable editing options
  • If you double click on a drawing tool, this is a shortcut to the Format Tool dialog

See the Edit Tools Overview topic for more information.

Saving Drawing Tools

Drawing Tools are automatically saved with the Settle3 file (i.e. when you select the Save or Save As options in the File menu), and will automatically re-appear when you open the file.

Undo / Redo

The Undo / Redo options apply to Drawing Tools as well as modelling changes. Therefore you can easily undo/redo changes to the Drawing Tools, without having to use the edit options.
