Wish list for Canvas Draw

Now that Albert got me past the bug I found in Canvas Draw 6, I'm using it. Here is the first item I would like to see added:

Add a Style sheet popup list in the Properties bar under the Insert: Choose Char popup box, like this,


Bring back the Scale Bar tool!

Michael Tiffany said: "Bring back the Scale Bar tool!"

I don't remember that, what did it do?

And, I found more bugs in v6, so I went back to v5.

Scale Bar enabled creation of a scale bar for a map or floor plan (which is my main use) by specifying the length, number of segments, scale, and the style of the elements. Very handy. Was in Canvas 9 for Mac and possibly earlier, and was in the PC version at least through 16.

Ah yes, I remember now.

That sounds really handy for what I'm doing with floor plans.

Is there a way to get the development people to look at this wish list? I think we're just talking amongst ourselves. 


I submitted a ticket, following your directions. Let's see what happens!

Don't expect anything to happen quickly, the development team is short on staff and they have a lengthy release schedule. I was told by James at ACD (who handles support contacts) that an update for v6 should be ready late this month. Trouble is, when they fix one thing, another thing breaks.
