GAD Level Toolbar

Top  Previous  Next

The GAD Level Toolbar allows you to control the Geometrically Aware Drawing calculations performed by FX Draw ranging from none up to full GAD regardless of the number of figures.  Most of the time you will leave it set to the default level (shown).

No GAD

FX Draw uses the mouse position for all actions

clip0638

Grid Only

FX Draw draws everything to the underlying grid with no geometric analysis.

Limited GAD (Default)

FX Draw determines geometrically important points and relationships but as the number of figures increases, the range of things determined is reduced.  For example, after there are more than 15 figures, FX Draw does not calculate points of intersection.  This option allows for extensive use of GAD without the computational limit problems.

"Infinite" GAD

Sometimes you will want to use GAD regardless of the computational cost.  With this option, FX Draw will calculate all geometrically important points and relationships regardless of the number of figures in the diagram
