The Penpal panel

You can dock the Penpal panel in your workspace, or use it floating. On Windows, the undo and redo functions work best when it's docked. Penpal can work nicely with the Tilde (~) key that maximizes whichever panel your cursor is currently over, especially on a dual-monitor setup.

Let's look at the different parts of the Penpal panel:

  1. Hamburger menu - this menu contains options for licensing, updating and getting technical support for the product, as well as the Preferences and a link to this documentation.

  2. Function buttons - to perform specific operations.

  3. Tooltips - they can be disabled in the Preferences.

  4. Canvas - the area where paths are displayed and you can select elements. Path direction is shown by an arrow after the first vertex.

  5. Context menu - the context menu is shown when you right-click within the canvas.

  6. Footer bar - the footer is permanent and contains buttons to Undo, and Redo, a checkbox to enable or disable snapping, and a zoom slider.
