Clear Screen Presentation

Outline Mode simplifies the presentation of all graphics to a thin outline of the graphic. Fill Color, Gradients, and other graphic content are not drawn; only the outlines of graphic shapes are shown.

Locate Hidden Graphics

It is assured that all graphics are visible in outline mode. EazyDraw automatically chooses a good color for the outline path. The color is compared to the drawing background color (white, black, or other), if a minimum level of contrast is not present a contrasting color is used.

Faster Display

Graphics that are selected on the Outline view found on the lower portion of the panel are displayed individually in the upper portion of the panel. This makes it easy to ascertain a graphic’s relative position on the drawing and in the database of graphic elements. The display shows individual or multiple graphics, groups and entire layers.

This is a clean display of just the selected graphic or group isolated from the rest of the drawing composition.

Graphic Finder Mode

In the early days of computer drawing outline mode was used to avoid sluggish screen updates. With todays faster computers this is not as important. But an outline display is always faster and can prove useful for complex drawings or work on less powerful portable devices.

Accurate Interaction

Finite line widths can obscure and present problems when working at very high zoom levels. In outline mode a hairline line width is used, quickly zoom in to very high levels in and interactively edit graphics with very high precision.

Wire Frame Display

This mode is similiar to a 3 dimensional wire frame display. This view of a drawing can be a very useful composition tool. Providing the designer with a clear view of all graphic components.

Quick Toggle
A customizable toolbar button is provided for quick toggling of Outline Mode. The button icon provides visual confirmation of the current mode of display. Or use the Menu Keys palette to assign a convenient keyboard short cut.
Use With Layers
Apply Outline Mode to a full drawing or to individual Layers. Great for tracing projects or precise cropping paths. This Layer clarification method works with layer color modification of both tint and opacity.
Adjustable Hairline
A user interface method is provided for adjusting the line width used for the hairline display of graphic outlines. Adjust for best appearance and use on any display screen or in different lighting.
