Rectangles

rectangleup.pngTo construct a rectangle, select the rectangle tool either by clicking on the rectangle button or by selecting Tools->Rectangle (Ctrl-R).

Use the primary mouse button to click where you want the first corner to go, then move (not drag) the mouse to the opposite corner, and click or press the Enter key to complete the path.

Note that this function is just a shortcut to using the closed line function. Once the rectangle is created, it is simply another closed path, and can be edited in exactly the same way.
