4. How to change line styles and other options

In most drawing modes, icons will appear at the bottom of the screen that can be used to set color, line width, and many other parameters. Click on the icon to pop a menu that allows you to make such changes.

For example, many drawing modes allow you to set the line width:

  1. Click on the Line width icon on the bottom of the screen.

  2. A popup menu will appear. Move the cursor into the text field labeled Value. Use the Backspace key to remove the old line width (usually 1). To get a double-width line, type 2, or use larger values for wider lines.

  3. Click on the Set button.

Changing the line width will only affect objects created after that point. To change the options of objects you have already created, see Section 6, “Modifying objects”.
