Handles Reference

TouchDraw uses color and decoration attributes to differentiate the varying functions of handles to allow for quick identification regarding what a handle does. The following table lists the different handles and their individual function:

Image Handle Name Handle Description
Bounds Handle The Bounds Handle is used to change the width and height of a shape.
Group Bounds Handle The Group Bounds Handle is used to change the width and height of a group. The white center dot is provided to show that a group of figures has been selected, as opposed to a single figure.
Path Start Handle The Path Start Handle indicates which point or a path is the starting point.
Path End Point Handle The Path End Point Handle indicates which point is an end (or start) point of a line or curve segment within a path.
Path Control Point Handle The Path Control Point Handle indicates which points of a path are control points. Control points are used to alter the shape of a Quadratic or Cubic curve segment to be altered.
Phantom Path Control Handle The Phantom Path Control Handle is a control handle displayed in gray to indicate that it has not been used. This characteristic provides a hint to the TouchDraw application that the handle should function as a control handle in scenarios where the next drawn segment is a curve.
Rotation Handle The Rotation Handle is displayed on shapes (or groups) which can be rotated around their center point. This handle can be rotated in increments of 15° when the Shift Key is held in conjunction with the Click/Drag action.
Center of Rotation Handle The Center of Rotation Handleindicates where the current center of rotation point lies in a selected shape(s) or group of shapes. The Center of Rotation option must be selected in the Handle Settings popup menu for this handle to be visible.
Lock Handle The Lock Handle indicates that the selected figure (or group) is currently locked, which means it cannot be resized or moved. The white center dot is provided to show that the figure (or group) cannot be altered.
Connection Handle The Connection Handle indicates that the selected line can be used to connect to figures.
Gradient Location Handle The Gradient Location Handle indicates the current center location of a gradient fill within a figure(s) or group of figures. The Gradient Location option must be selected in the Handle Settings popup menu for this handle to be visible.
