How to Quickly Draw Controls with R, T, Y and I Keys

This is a feature for when you really need maximum speed to keep up with your thoughts. Instead of using the UI Library or Quick Add to add shapes to the canvas, you can hold down a specific key and drag.

Here is the list of these controls and their related letter key:

  • R for Rectangle
  • T for Block of text
  • Y for Line of text
  • I for Image

You can then use the Transform feature to transform these basic shapes into their final forms.

This feels just like sketching on a notepad, try it.
