Introduction:  The instructions and video below show how-to place a Rectangular Panel in OpenRoads SignCAD.

Step 1:  In OpenRoads SignCAD, pick Panels>Rectangular. The Rectangular tool is used to create a rectangular sign panel that automatically adjusts in size as objects are added to or removed from it.

Step 2:  The Place Rectangular Panel dialog shows the default panel parameters and includes the following groups: General, Size, Border, Spacing, Attributes and Appearance. You can set the panel properties before placing the panel.

NOTE: The Rectangular Panel Properties can be edited after creation through the Properties dialog.

Step 3:  A small cross-hair cursor identifies where the panel will be located. Left-click to place the Rectangular Panel on the workspace and close the dialog.
