Panels
Everything you need, all in one place

To make it easier and faster to work with your layout and designs MacDraft uses 2 important panels to control the selection of tools and the editing and manipulation of objects. The left panel shows all of the drafting tools, dimension tools and advanced tools. The right panel shows the Properties panel, Layers panel, Swatches panel and the Alignment panel. The use of panels in MacDraft gives you the ability to work in a clean and intuitive drawing environment, while giving you everything you need, all in one place.

Scale & Units
Fully scaled drawing environment

Scales are a great way to be able to draw larger designs and layouts onto a smaller piece, while maintaining the size and proportion of your drawings. You’ll find a whole set of useful default scales to use, in both English and Metric units. If you can’t find the scale you are looking for from the default list, you could always create your own. Our smart unit system allows you to change it at any time. It will convert any sizes of your document to the new format you have selected. In addition if you are using feet and inches, but type millimeters when editing objects, the smart units system will convert it for you.

Snapping
Object positioning made easy

The Smart Snap feature gives you complete control over the positioning of your objects and groups with relation to other items in the document. Quickly snap to the edges and centers with intuitive and precise snap guides. Combine the Smart Snap feature with the vertices snapping option and you’ll have absolute control of the movement, manipulation, alignment and drawing of objects in relation to all other items in your document. You may wish to turn the Smart Snap feature off in more complex documents. You can do this via the Layout menu or for much quicker control over the option, you can use the Toolbar item to quickly switch Smart Snap on/off. You’ll also find that snapping can be used between layers if you need to and you can customize the color of the snapping reference lines you use.

new1

Layers
Complete control with the Layers panel

Take full control of your drawings and manage your layers using a fully functioning and intuitive Layers panel. You can create, move, delete and manage all of your layers in one place. In addition you can choose to use different scales for individual layers. Layers are a great way to put your drawing together, for example, make one layer for your dimensions, a layer for your walls and a layer for your furniture. You could then hide and show the layers you want depending on what you wanted to see. You could even create multiple furniture layers, each with a different furniture layout. With the all new Layers palette you will find managing your drawings faster and more efficient, giving you a single place to control all of your drawing components.

new1

Text
Combine beautiful text with all your designs

Add text to your drawings with our easy to use Type tool, giving you all you need for marking up and annotating your designs with those important comments and notes. Take your text to the next level, by customizing the fonts and styles you use with the text attributes and add your own fonts to the system and use them in your drawings. Adding text to your designs, creating text layouts or text in page layouts has never been easier.

new1

Wall Drawing
Floor plans made easy with parallel lines

Create floor plans and wall layouts quickly and easily with MacDrafts’s intuitive parallel line tools, designed to make drawing your walls quick and simple. In addition you can add extra walls to existing ones using the Extrude Parallel Line tools, which means you can quickly and easily edit and update existing floor plans with ease. The wall drawing tools give you the option to change the end caps, thickness and more importantly the position at which they are drawn, such as from an inside mesurement, outside or center.

new1

Advanced Duplication
Manage object creation with intuitive duplication

MacDraft has a number of options for duplicating your objects, ranging from the traditional copy and paste to advanced duplication methods. You can duplicate your selected object(s) through the use of the standard duplicate option. The advanced options allow you to duplicate objects using a linear method or a circular method, giving you the ability to orientate your duplicates in complex ways. For example, use the circular duplication to create a mechanical gear, by duplicating the teeth around its center. You could even use the linear duplication to create a grid of rectangles. In addition to this, you can also move or make a copy of a selection and place it on another layer, with or without an offset.

Smart Selection
Navigate complex documents with Select Special

An impressive but simple feature included in MacDraft is “Select Special”. This allows you to choose what you are looking to select from a list of objects and only select them in the document. You’ll also find that you can choose to select more than just particluar shapes and objects, you can be more precise and choose to select a particular object, with a particular fill color and line style. The advanced selection options give you the freedom to control your selections, making it easier and faster to make changes to your documents, no matter how complex they are.

new1

Drawing Size
Huge drawing size for all your design needs

MacDraft offers a huge 178.50 by 178.50 inch drawing size which gives you all the space you need to create your complex CAD drawings. Combine that with the scale system and you'll have all you need to produce quality, large scale drawings easily. In addition the intuitive drawing size panel allows you to visualize how many pages the layout will be spread across, respective to the page size you have selected. This means you can even print larger drawings across multiple smaller pages, perfect for those that don’t have access to a large format printer.

Gradients
Vibrant and beautiful color blends made easy

Gradients are at the heart of any graphical and vibrant layout. MacDraft supports the creation and management of Linear and Radial gradients. Create vibrant color blends for use in vector illustration, colorful floor and garden plans and much more. The gradients can be stored, edited and duplicated making it easier for you to manage your swatches and share them throughout all your drawings. Create vibrant color blends with multiple colors using the traditional linear method, with or without angles or create unique color blends with multiple colors using a radial blend type. Change the position of the radial centre for glowing styles. All gradients can not only be applied to the fill attribute of an object, but also to the stroke. This means you can create nice looking lines, curves and borders that take on the look and feel of the gradient.

new1

Colors
Full control with custom color swatches

Take your designs to the next level by creating your own custom color swatches using the Swatches panel. Use the familiar system color panel to choose your colors, either by the color wheel, hex values, RGB, CMYK and much more. These colors will be stored and saved with the document so that you can keep them for future use. In addition you can create a set of color shapes and share them between other documents to add them to the Swatches panel.

new1

Patterns
Create custom repeatable and scalable patterns

MacDraft includes a custom pattern generator allowing you to create repeatable and scalable patterns for use in many different ways. You can create full color or black and white patterns up to 512 by 512 pixels. These patterns will be stored with your document for future use. In addition you can paste an image that you have copied into the pattern editor, and MacDraft will create the pixel work for you. MacDraft’s pattern creator will save you hours of drawing time and allow you to create some impressive textures for just about anything.

Document Guides
Manage and layout page content with ease

Guides are a great way to control the position and alignment of you objects across a page. They can help when creating layout documents, CAD drawings, engineering plans and more. You can add guides either by holding the Command key down and dragging from the rulers to a location, or for precise guide positioning, you can use the add guide options in the Options menu. You can even change the color of your guides for that extra custom control.

new1

Reports
Integrated database for generating reports

MacDraft's database features let you quickly and easily assign information to objects, perform Find/Replace operations, and create custom reports. Its report functions allow you to extract important information from your drawing, such as area, count, height, width, length, and perimeter. Reports can be displayed on screen to show the current status of your drawing or printed. As MacDraft's database is integrated, changes made to the drawing will be updated automatically in the report system.

Usable Gray Area
Giving full control over your document space

Drag objects around the document area and overlap them into the gray space. This will allow you to control your bleeds and overlays for document layouts and printing. In addition to overlapping your objects, you can also drag them into the gray space and store them there while you are working on other parts of the drawing. Anything stored in the gray space or overlapped will be excluded from printing. This allows you to control how your bleeds and document overlays are printed.

new1

Printing
A familiar and user friendly printing experience

Print your documents with a familiar printing experience as with any other Mac application. MacDraft will take the printable page sizes from your printers driver, making it easier to choose your page sizes and printable regions. In addition, as MacDraft has a huge document size, if you’re fortunate enough to have access to a large format printer, you can print your designs on a huge page size.
