> A fresh new command in DraftSight is the Trapezoid Command. A Trapezoid is a
   four sided figure with one pair of parallel sides.  Use the Trapezoid command to
   draw a 2D conical entity.  The Trapezoid is created as a PolyLine entity.

> In the latest episode of Let's Go Design, Jeremy uses DraftSight to help his
   productivity.  Watch this video, DraftSight and Let's Go Design, to see how he
   was able to use 2D legacy data to help create the design of his field of play.

  Community Tips & Tricks

> SpellCheck Tip

You can check the spelling inside your DraftSight Drawing.  Type SpellCheck at the command prompt.  In the graphics area, select the Text entities to check and press <Enter>. The SpellCheck dialog box appears if DraftSight finds a spelling mistake.  You can choose to Ignore, Ignore All, Change, Change All and even Look Up a word to find Synonyms.

> Flip Command Tip

Use the Flip command to create a mirror copy of entities, deleting the source entities.

The command contrasts to the Mirror command in that entities do not remain in their original positions when they move across the mirror axis.  Instead they maintain the same relative position to the symmetry axis, but flip about the specified mirror axis.

You can define the reflection axis freely by specifying two points.  Use Ortho mode to force the mirror line to be parallel to the X- or Y-axis of the coordinate system.
