The Shape Menu is accessible only in the creation/editing mode. To use any of the 10 commands, place at least one node in the work area, then select one of the shapes and draw it in the work area. Right mouse click and select To Elements from the small pop-up menu. Mapwel software will move the last node to the nearest point on the shape just created and the shape will be started from that point. This means the shape can be started from any point.
