Drawer With Each Drawing:

Each EazyDraw drawing has its own Graphic Details drawer. When a graphic is selected, this drawer displays all defining information for the graphic - the same numerical values that are used to construct the graphic element. The drawer may be used as an inspector to view defining characteristics numerically, or to enter new values.

Format Control:

EazyDraw provides full user control of the format of the size and position metrics. For example, you may choose fractional feet and inches for an architectual drawing, or centimeters for metric work. Decimal formatting is another choice with your selection for decimal precision.

Contextual:

The display layout of the Graphic Details drawer changes, depending upon the form of the graphic that is selected for inspection. This provides optimum information content with a minimum of screen real estate. This provides an efficient, natural flow of information between you and the application.

No Hidden Variables:

The numeric information provided on the Graphic Details drawer is complete, all metrics that EazyDraw uses to define a graphic are available for user inspection and input.

Fully Scaled
The numeric values used on the Graphic Details drawer are fully scaled and defined in the units of the drawing. This means that you enter values naturally, no need to perform "off sheet" multiplications or additions. Any changes of units, scale, or drawing origin are reflected immediately in the numeric values displayed.
Simple Math
You may use basic mathematical expressions with numeric input on the graphic details drawer. Being able to add to or subtract from base values can be a big time saver when specifying position and lengths numerically.
Live Update
When you interactively edit a graphic, the numeric values shown on the Graphic Details drawer are updated in real time. This is a great way to view your drawing and the precise metrics of a graphic as it is being edited.
