Properties Pallet Icon Labels
Have you ever wondered what those icons are in the Properties Pallet? You can hover your cursor over the icon and see the tooltip, but did you know you can show the labels for these icons? Right-click your mouse while your cursor is in the Properties Pallet and choose “show Icons and labels”. This will add the descriptions to all of the icons in the pallet.

Often overlooked is the use of Function Keys in DraftSight. Using the Function Keys, or “hot keys” allows you to quickly activate a command in DraftSight.
Here is a list of standard Function Key settings:
F1 – Help, F2 – Command Window, F3 – Esnap Toggle, F5 – Isoplane Toggle, F7 – Grid Toggle, F8 – Ortho Toggle, F9 – Snap Toggle, F10 – Polar Toggle and F11 – Etrack Toggle.
Remember, the Function Keys are at the top of your keyboard, and you simply need to press the key to activate.
The Trim Command is one of the most commonly used functions within DraftSight. It’s also one of the most misunderstood. Follow along with this video to understand the proper way to use the Trim Command.
