Rectangles are areal drawing elements. Figure 9-25 shows a yellow rectangle with a blue border.
Rectangles have three properties which can be configured, the color and width of the border and the color of the interior of the rectangle.
The properties of the rectangle can be altered with the Properties menu item in the context menu which appears when the mouse cursor is placed over the rectangle and one of the secondary mouse buttons is pressed.
The color of the outline border can be configured by selecting a new color from the color picker as was explained in Section 9.4.1 ― Drawing Lines. for the line drawing element. The width of the border can be configured by typing a new dimension in the text box or by clicking on the increment arrows, up to increase the width and down to decrease the width. The color of the interior of the rectangle, the 'fill' color, can be configured in the same way as the color of the outline border.
