Report Design Component Palette Icon:


The Pencil shape component lets you draw free-hand path segments that automatically smooth the curves. Using a Pencil shape can emphasize an area or an item on a report. Select the Pencil shape on the Report Design Palette to make it active, and draw a free-hand path anywhere in the Report Designer. If you stop drawing inside the small square that is placed at the shape's origin, then you will create a closed path, otherwise, you'll create an open path (line). Once a path is created, you can use the handles to change its width and height. You can also change its stroke style, color, and more.
