You can also rotate the Shapes by tapping and dragging the little button on the top right corner. It looks like a mini “Refresh” button.


You can adjust the “Opacity” of the Shapes too.

Opacity allows you to control the transparency of the colours or the shapes. However you may understand.

You can set the Opacity right from 0% and then go up all the way up to 100%.

“Fill” means to completely fill the inner portion of shapes like Square, Rectangle, Triangle etc.

Once you set the option to”Fill”, you no longer get access to the “Size” option. Because you can adjust the size by dragging the edges of the shapes.


Opposite to “Fill”. Stroke option is available for shapes like Square, Rectangle, Triangle etc only. Not actually only as you are restricted to just 2 out of 27.
