In this section of the tutorial, we'll label the schematic using lines and circles.
Lines first. Draw lines (using the pen tool) for every flat measurement on your schematic.
Notice I have measurements for cross-back and collar, and I put the shorter line on top. Next, use the select tool (F1) to select all the measurement lines.
Go to Object--Fill and Stroke--Stroke style and choose start and end markers.
Now for the round measurements. We'll use the circle tool for these.
You can leave them like this, or you can make them into arcs. Move the round nodes, then click "Switch to arc" at the top of your window.
Again, select them all, then add start and end markers.
Now add numbers with the Text tool.
Once you have entered some text, you can fine-tune it using the Text and Font dialog.
And there you have it.
Next up: combining shapes (my favorite!)
