Flyout Toolbars
   Any tool with a red triangle hides a “flyout” toolbar containing extra
tools. Click and hold the left mouse button for > 1 second.
Aware Drawing
   FX Draw provides dynamic feedback that shows the geometric

Make sure
turned on!
   Any relationships that you have created with GAD are
remembered. Move the base object and all relationships
are maintained.

Right Click
   Most figures have extra properties that can be accessed
by right-clicking on the figure.
Figure Information
   If you select a figure (anything you have drawn) and then
hover the mouse near that figure, FX Draw will display
Annotations
   When FX Draw is displaying figure information, right click
annotation.
   Annotations are dynamically updated as the figure
changes.
Three Point Circles
   Many tools require that the object be defined by three
points – triangles, three point arcs, three point ellipses,
three point circles. A good way to practice using these
tools is to draw a circumcircle using the three point circle
tool.
Using the Compass
   FX Draw 4 adds a Compass tool that works just like the
normal, centre point / point on radius tool, but then
remembers the radius so the second and subsequent

Use the Compass tool
to draw this “daisy”.
Marking Angles
   FX Draw 4 can mark angles with one-click. If you right-
click on a marked angle, you can select from 10 different
angle marking options.
   Angle marks are dynamic. Move the lines and the
angles are re-measured.

Rulers & Protractors
   The ruler and protractor tools let you demonstrate
measurements on paper and on screen.

Properties
Data Generators
   FX Draw 4 includes handy data generators that can save
you hours of time. Just fill in the blanks and push OK.
Box Plot Example Part 1
   Use the Normal Random Number Generator to generate
some data into Column A – and then use the generator
again to generate data with a different mean and
standard deviation into Column B
Box Plot Example Part 2
   Choose Quick Graph from the Right Click Menu on
Columns A and B.

Then press the Graph Type button and
choose a box plot

Other Statistical
Functions
   FX Draw’s statistics tool can also:
   Produce summary statistics for one variable and two variable
data
   Perform regression analysis for seven regression models
   Handle grouped data and frequency tables
   Produce frequency tables, cumulative frequency tables and
grouped data from raw data
   Transform data using a variety of functions
Normal Distribution
Curves
    The normal distribution curve tool gives you quick
also add annotations to the curves.

x = 5, x > 3.
   Number lines can be horizontal or vertical.

Grid / Dot Papers
   FX Draw can produce a wide
variety of grid and dot papers.
Unit Circle
   The Home Key, Page Up, Page Down, Up Arrow and
Down Arrow keys can be used to animate a unit circle.
Tree Diagrams
   Enter a tree’s “shape” using the number of branches at
each level. For example, this tree is 4,3,2.
Gallery Images
   Gallery images provide hundreds of pre-drawn images
that you can use as the basis for your own diagrams.
Gallery Tips 1
   Gallery images have “direction”. This means that each
gallery image can be used in many different ways.
   Each of these images has come from the same “base”
gallery image.
Gallery Tips 2
   After you have drawn a gallery image, you can “ungroup”
it (Ungroup from the Edit menu). This gives you access
to the individual components of the image and lets you
modify it to suit your needs.
Email Tutorials
   Efofex provides comprehensive training for FX Draw 4
available as convenient email tutorials. Register at
www.efofex.com/emailtutes.php. The system will send
an email a day for a few weeks.
   Email tutorials are available for all Efofex products.
