    Tips for working with shapes

    • To make a square, insert a Rectangle and set its width and height to identical numbers.
    • A circle is simply an Ellipse with its width and height set to identical numbers
    • To create a line, reduce the height (or width) of a rectangle to a very small number and set the outline thickness to 0. Use the Fill color property to change the line color.

    Properties, Triggers & Actions

    Properties

    See Common asset properties for details about properties shared in common with assets

    Ellipse

    • Fill color: specifies the color used inside the shape
    • Outline thickness: sets width of a border on the outside of the shape. The value represents the percentage of the distance to the center of the shape that will be considered a border.
    • Outline color: the color of the border. This property is revealed if the Outline thickness property is set to a value other than 0.
    • Flat: if disabled, the Elipse will have a sense of depth
    • Shadow: enables or disables the Shadow effect of the Elipse

    Rectangle

    • Fill color: specifies the color used inside the shape
    • Outline thickness: sets width of a border on the outside of the shape. The value represents the percentage of the distance to the center of the shape that will be considered a border.
    • Outline color: the color of the border. This property is revealed if the Outline thickness property is set to a value other than 0.
    • Radius: sets the curvature of each corner
    • Flat: if disabled, the Rectangle will have a sense of depth
    • Shadow: enables or disables the Shadow effect of the Rectangle

    Use the Position, Size and Orientation category of properties to modify the width and height of a shape.
