How to Draw a Perfect Circle, Square or Straight Line in Silhouette Studio
Friday, March 21, 2014
You can see in this example that while the circle looks round, the ruler reveals it's actually not perfectly round.
If you want a symmetrical circle here's a little trick...hold down the SHIFT key while using your mouse to draw the circle. The circle will be drawn perfectly.
The same goes for the 'Draw a Square' and 'Draw a Rounded Rectangle' tool. Of course, keep in mind, the 'rounded rectangle' will actually be a rounded square because all sides are kept proportional.
To make a perfectly horizontal or vertical line you can also hold down the SHIFT key while drawing the line. That means you avoid the deceivingly straight lines that are actually a few degrees off straight.
The line will only snap straight at 45 degrees or 90 degrees.
