Creating freehand sketches

A freehand sketch consists of many straight line segments, created either as individual line entities or as a polyline. Before you begin creating a freehand sketch, you must set the length, or increment, of each segment. The smaller the segments, the more accurate your sketch, but segments that are too small can greatly increase the file size.

After you specify the length of the sketch segments, the crosshairs change to a Pencil tool. Your freehand sketch is not added to the drawing until you "write" the sketch into your drawing. This means that you temporarily save the segment that you've drawn and the segment length, and you can continue sketching.

To create a freehand sketch

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Freehand.
    • On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Draw Freehand tool ().
    • Type freehand and then press Enter.
  2. Specify the length of the sketch segments.
  3. Click the mouse button to place the Pencil tool () on the drawing to begin sketching.
  4. Move the pencil image to draw a temporary freehand sketch.
  5. Click the mouse button to lift the pencil up to stop sketching.
  6. In the prompt box, choose Write, Then Resume to write the temporary freehand sketch into the drawing.
  7. Click the mouse button to put the pencil down again and resume sketching.
  8. Click the mouse button again to lift the pencil up to stop sketching.
  9. In the prompt box, choose Done to write the temporary freehand sketch into the drawing and end the command.

 

A freehand sketch consists of individual line entities or a polyline.
