The "New Linear" tool allows you to create a Linear digitized item on your plan.

1. Select Linear to open the linear toolbox.

2.  On this window, you can name your Linear item and choose a color for it.

PlanSwift automatically picks a random color; if you would like a different color, simply click the drop-down menu under "Color".

The "New Linear" tool is very easy to use, just click two or more points.

3.  When you are finished setting the properties, select the OK button to continue.

Make sure your page is scaled; if not, PlanSwift will automatically open the "Scale" window.

Notice that the "Digitizer Record" button is red; this indicates that the on-screen digitizer is now working.

4.  Simply click on the endpoints of your Linear item. If you accidentally click in the wrong spot, you can undo it by pressing "Backspace" or "Ctrl-z" on your keyboard.

In PlanSwift 9.3 and later you can end a Linear and remain in the "Digitizer Record" mode by double-clicking the final point of a Linear. After the double-click you can quickly enter a new Linear without clicking the Linear button.

5.  End the on-screen digitizer by pressing "Esc" or by clicking the "Digitizer Record" button.
