View - Drawing objects

Drawing objects are shapes and text you can add to your reports. They are useful for customizing the look of your reports to make them acceptable for presentations, or to clarify items on the page that might not be self-explanatory.

You have the following drawing objects at your disposal:

Each drawing object can be moved, resized, cloned, cut and pasted. You can also change the font and/or color of any drawing object. All drawing objects are accessible via the Drawing object toolbar.

To apply a drawing object to the current page:

  1. Select View Drawing Objects to display the Drawing object toolbar if it is not already visible.
  2. Select the shape you want to use.
  3. A crosshair will appear. Position the crosshair where you want the upper-left corner of the shape to be and click the left mouse button to apply it to the page.
  4. To resize the object simply click on the object and drag one of the black squares to the desired size.
