Contextual Menu

The Contextual Menu provides access to basic editing functions within TouchDraw along with Path, Layer, and Line options. It is accessible by either touching and pressing on the Drawing Canvas for ~1 second or pressing on the Contextual Menu Button in the Top Toolbar, as shown below.

The options shown on this menu change depending on the type of figure(s) and number of figures currently selected within the Drawing Canvas. Options will also vary based on previous changes made to figure(s). For example, the Paste Submenu does not appear unless a figure has been cut or copied and path choices only appear when a path figure has been selected.
