Sketcher Rectangle


This tool draws a rectangle by first picking a point that will become the center point, then by picking an edge point. The result is a rectangle like with the Rectangle tool, only the definition points are different.

When starting the tool, the mouse pointer changes to a white cross with a red rectangle icon. The coordinates of the pointer are shown beside it in blue in real time.



  • After pressing the Sketcher CreateRectangle Center.svg Create centered rectangle toolbar button, click once to set the center point, then move the mouse and click a second time to set a corner point.
  • Pressing Esc or clicking the right mouse button cancels the function.
