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.

Tips and Tricks for Drawing 3D Perspectives #2

Tips and Tricks for use with Microspot MacDraft #2:

Drawing 3D Perspectives

Guides should always be in a separate layer to the rest of the drawing.

Often when drawing complicated 3D perspectives and trying to create a detailed representation of a view, the custom drawn guides can sometimes get in the way. The best way to counter this annoyance is to make sure that the guides you draw are in a separate layer to the rest of the drawing, that way you can change the visibility of that layer as a when you need to, therefore making the design process much easier and a lot faster, saving you time in the long run.
