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:

Click or tap the ‘Select Objects’ tool in the bottom right tray. Then, tap or click the objects you wish to select.Then, click ‘Confirm’ to confirm the selection.

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.
