Working with objects
Most tools create modifiable objects. Left-click an existing to object to select it. Click and drag inside the object to reposition it or drag the border markers to resize it. Drag the center square to rotate an object.
The most recently added object always has the highest position on the object hierarchy and appears on top of every other object. To alter this position and have the arrow appear below the ellipse, use the context menu.
Click the gear symbol to access existing object styles and click on an entry to adjust the visual appearance of your object. Use “Add” to add the current object style as a new style and “Delete” to delete the selected style from the list.
Whenever you select or create a new object you will see its properties at the bottom of the screen. These are the most frequent object properties: Size / Width
Sets the stroke or border width. Color
Allows you to specify a color through a menu or the color selection dialog. Tolerance
Affects how much an effect extends to pixels of a similar color. Shadow
Enables/Disables the drop shadow effect. Line Style

Right-click an object to access its context menu. Width Highlighted Object at Mouse Cursor Do / With Selected Object Do
Rotate 90° Left
Snap distinguishes between the currently selected object and the object below the mouse pointer. When a large rectangle sits on top of a small circle, you will usually have to move the rectangle out of the way or modify the object hierarchy

Selects the object that precedes the current object in the object hierarchy. Choose Object
This is a list of all objects that sit below the mouse pointer. Click an entry to select the associated object.
Modifying objects after saving
Snap allows you to modify objects in saved screenshots. This is possible because Snap creates a separate SNAPDOC file for each capture. This format retains all object settings and properties, unlike traditional image formats, allowing you to alter them at a later time. When you load an existing image with Snap, Snap will always use the SNAPDOC copy, if available. This mechanism also enables you to undo all changes to a screenshot and restore the original image, if needed.
These features let you perform typical image processing tasks such as image rotation. Note that some settings such as the copyright feature not only affect the current file but also future files. Undo All / Reset to Original
