The putting of values shall be carried out only if the template is applicable to that type of figures, for example, the %area% template (area) cannot be applied to the interval.
 
In the application the following types of templates are used:
 

  • %length% – Length or perimeter of the figure (depending on the type of the figure)
  • %area% – Area of the figure
  • %angle% – Angle between the figure intervals; Angle

 
 
 
 
The subscriptions can be linked or unlinked.
 
The linked subscription is created with the figure by default, it is moved with the figure when the latter is moved.
 
The unlinked subscription can be moved separately from the figure, by that, the application shall draw an arrow from the subscription to the figure.
 
It is possible to switch between the linked and unlinked subscription with the help of the context menu of the subscription. In order to do that, click with the right button of the mouse at the subscription and select Link/Unlink the subscription in the opened menu).
