Click-click drawing

The easiest way to draw in the Vectorworks program is to use the mouse. Select the appropriate tool button and create an object in either the click-click or the click-drag mode, depending on the type of object.

In click-click mode, click the mouse to mark the start point of an object, and then click again at each of the object’s corners or vertices. The program defaults to click-click mode, and all procedures in this guide are based on click-click drawing. This preference can be changed in Vectorworks preferences.


In click-drag mode, click and continue to hold down the mouse button while you create an object; release the button when the object is the desired size and shape.


Use the Data bar for accurate object placement and creation. See Using the Data bar.

Creating vector locks can facilitate drawing and moving objects.
