Claris Draw Libraries
Example of converting a Claris Draw drawing to a native EazyDraw drawing.

Encapsulate a Graphic or Group:

Any graphic, no matter how complex, may be encapsulated as a user library element. These elements may then be re-used in other drawings with a simple button click, drag-drop, copy-paste, or as a standard creation tool. Each user library has 3 mode of usage, Element, Name, or Tool. Use one mode for creating and managing a library and the Tool mode is usually the best for using a library.

Tool Mode:

Change the library to Tool Mode and the graphics that you created become custom tools. User designed tools have the same click drag and create capability as the built-in EazyDraw tools. Design the tool palette by drag-and-drop to rearrange the tools as desired. Full drag and drop support to add your custom tools to other library tool palettes.

Add Colors, Gradients and Other Properties:

Graphic properties may be represented as library elements. Use the Transfer palette to select which properties a library tool will apply. Or drag the small library icon from a user parameter palette to a library to easily create a single property user button. This works with most EazyDraw parameter palettes, such as dashed lines, arrows, colors, fill patterns... .

Use Claris Draw Libraries:

Open OS 9 CLarisDraw libraries directly. Seamless import of libraries created with Claris Draw on OS 9. The library graphics are read as fully editable native vector graphics.

Install: Menu Commands
The Libraries menu is fully user configurable. A user library can be permanently installed as a normally accessible submenu. Show your items as names, icons or both. This capability is important because it allows you to assign keyboard shortcuts to your custom graphics and tools.
Get Additions Pack
A group of pre-made user libraries are available. They are part of the Additions Pack which is available on the CD and Boxed versions of EazyDraw. The Contributions Pack has several user libraries available for download at no charge.
Custom Tool Palettes
Standard EazyDraw drawing tools may be dragged and dropped onto a library tool palette. This means that it is trivial to create your own custom user interface. You may even drop an icon graphic of your design onto the library element to use your own button icons.
