How do I drag an item to the Library palette?

Hold down the Command key while you are dragging the item to the Library. The reason we have done this is because if you drag an item without the command key it automatically scrolls the document.

My Library has gone missing from the Library palette, how can I get it back?
This is a common occurrence if you have moved the library that you are looking for from its original saved position. It’s not a problem, as you can get it back in the library palette quite easily, using one of these two methods:

  • Locate the place where your library is on your computer in the Finder, then drag it to the MacDraft Library palette. To drag it to the Library palette you will need to make MacDraft the active window while dragging. To do this drag the item, while holding the mouse button to drag, click the F9 key, then while still holding the mouse key down move the cursor to the MacDraft window and click the F9 key again. Then move the cursor to the library palette and release the mouse button to place the library.
  • Go to the Library palette and click the gear symbol in the bottom left hand corner. Select Open Library from the pop-up menu. An Open dialog appears, locate your library and click the Open button.

Tips and Tricks for use with Microspot MacDraft #5:

General Use of MacDraft

I have a common set of items that I use in my drawings, that are not your typical symbols. What’s the best way for me to store these items in MacDraft?


Speeding up your design process is something that has become expected in the design industry, it is important to people that they can perform their task with speed and efficiency. Being able to store your commonly used items can help to increase your productivity, as you do not have to draw them every time you want to use them. So MacDraft has the new Library palette to help you. All you need to do is create a library of your own in the Library palette and drag the items that you use regularly in that library. To do this use the following:

  1. Get all of the items that you want to use in one document. (This will speed up the creation of a Library).
  2. Go to the Library palette and at the bottom left of the palette, click the gear symbol.
  3. In the pop-up that appears, select the New Library option.
  4. A Save dialog will appear. Give the Library a name and a destination to save it to and click Save (Save your libraries somewhere easy to locate. Maybe create a folder on your desktop called My MacDraft Libraries).
  5. The new library will appear in the library palette. Make sure the new library is selected and drag the items you want into the library window.
