Draw a vector PolyBezier polygon

After you have vectorized the image, you can add various characters such as text or shapes as needed. If you need to draw a PolyBezier polygon in your vector image, follow these steps:

1. If they are not already selected, click the following icons:

2. If no Pick Color is highlighted yet, Scan2CAD will draw the polygon in black.

If you want to draw in another color aside from black, select a Pick Color.

3. Choose a pen size using Vector Edit Menu > Pen Type > Pen Width.
4. The default setting for the polybezier polygon will be solid filled.

To draw a polybezier outline, press Shift+S or deselect Vector Edit Menu > Pen Type > Solid Fill.

5. Click the first point of the PolyBezier curve.
6. Click at the next point you would like the PolyBezier curve to pass through. A dash line joins the two points.
To undo it, right click and select Undo Last Segment.
To cancel the PolyBezier curve completely, right click and select Quit.
7. When you finish the PolyBezier curve, Scan2CAD will draw a curve through the points you have entered. However, in some situations you will want a sharp angle at a point rather than a curve.

For example, let’s say you are drawing a heart and you have just entered the top middle point:

The top middle point should be sharp.

To make it sharp, right click and select Make Last Point Sharp.

When you finish the PolyBezier curve, the point will be sharp:

If you do not select Make Last Point Sharp, a curve will be drawn through the point when you finish the PolyBezier curve:

8. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 until you have drawn all the points the PolyBezier curve must pass through:

9. Right click.

         To close the PolyBezier curve, select Close PolyBezier:

Scan2CAD automatically closes the PolyBezier curve.


Click to undo.
