Working with Object Tools

menu and quick adjustment. Clip/drag to resize, align, rotate, move and group objects. See the video in Basics for some basic moves.

Objects created can be easily resize, move, or group. Two line objects can be merged or connected into one object. Use Composite   

and Random


in the right Edit Tool Bar to make multiples of the same object in various sizes/locations and create repeating and special patterns. Right-

click on a composite object and select Split to split it into multiple individual ones. It is a quick way to make multiple copies of the same object in the same

size or different sizes. Following examples show that a rectangle or a leave can be made into a designed object or a wall paper in just one click.
