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.
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.
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.
