1.  Select the layer where you want to draw the new object and click on the Add Object tool.


2.  Each time that you left click, a mark representing an external point of the shape will be drawn.


3.  To finish drawing the shape double click after marking the last external point of the shape.


Remember:

a.  If the active layer is Polygon, the added object will be a polygon, therefore you would need to draw at least 3 points before finishing the shape.

b.  If the active layer is Line, you need to draw at least 2 points before finishing the shape.

c.  If the active layer is Point, you need to double click each point that you need to draw.

If you want to make sure that you are working on the correct layer, look at the bottom of the screen where you will find information about the active layer and the type of objects that contains.
