FlexiCAD has 2 main modes of use: PC-Mode and Touch-Mode
PC Mode is the default mode used of FlexiCAD. This mode is optimized for use and editing in a computer-based environment, usually with a scroll-wheel mouse or similar. For users that are familiar with drafting software such as Autodesk AutoCAD, or CAM software such as Alphacam, this mode may be more familiar.
Touch-mode is optimized for touch-screen devices, such as Microsoft Surface tablets and other touchscreen computers.
- Button sizes are larger for easier selection by touch.
- Object-snapping behaviors are optimized for touch-use.
- Panning can be achieved by touch with one finger on the screen
- Zoom in/out by pinching 2 fingers together or apart
To select objects in Touch-Mode:
To select between Touch-Mode and PC-mode, Open FlexiCAD and select ‘Touch-Mode’ or ‘PC-Mode’ from the general preferences pane.
Note that the button reads the option that will be selected when touched. Therefore, if the button reads ‘Touch-mode’, then FlexiCAD is currently in PC-Mode. If the button reads ‘PC-Mode’, then the software is currently in Touch-mode.
