    This tool draws a rectangle by picking two opposite points. When starting the tool, the mouse pointer changes to a white cross with a red rectangle icon. The coordinates of the pointer are shown beside it in blue in real time.

    To define a rectangle via a center point and an edge point, use the Centered rectangle tool.



    • After pressing the Sketcher CreateRectangle.svg Create rectangle toolbar button, click once to set the first corner, then move the mouse and click a second time to set the opposite corner.
    • Pressing Esc or clicking the right mouse button cancels the function.
