Operating Shapes Properties

An Edraw drawing can be far more than a picture - it can also be a valuable way to organize your data. Properties are a collection of data that can be associated with shapes in your drawing or master shapes on a custom stencil. You can add, edit or delete them.

There are twelve kinds of properties listed as follows:

  • Number

  • String

  • Date Time

  • Duration

  • Currency

  • Boolean

  • Fixed List

  • Variable List

  • Color

  • Percentage

  • Scientific

  • Image
