Curved lines that auto close to create a shape - compatible with Fill & Measure tools

Updated over a week ago

Drawing and using irregular shapes in ArcSite just got a whole lot easier.

The freehand drawing mode does not constrain you to straight-line segments and arcs, allowing you to fill and measure any sort of irregular shape you need. Sketch out pools, complex landscaping features, golf courses, patios, and more.

The freehand tool is located among the other draw tools, below Line/ Arc. To create a fillable area, make sure the "Auto Complete" setting is turned on in settings, then draw your shape.

Note that with the "Auto Complete" setting turned on, the shape will auto-close when you approach the starting point. The area will be fillable using the fill tool, area-based products, and the area measurement tool.

If you used to use freehand to annotate your drawings, you'll find a tool similar to the old freehand mode among the annotation tools.
