Shapes (Mac)

To create a shape, select a shape template from the menu on the right while using the pen or highlighter tool.

  • Choose from rectangles, ovals, triangles, stars, and polygons (up to 8 sides).
  • To create a perfect circle or square, hold down the Shift key during shape creation while the oval or rectangle are selected.


After a shape template has been inserted, move the selectable points to adjust the shape.

Our ink, shapes, and eraser features can be used together seamlessly. For instance, use Partial Eraser to make shapes within shapes. Additionally, when you handwrite over a shape, you can use the Whole Eraser to quickly erase the ink at once.

Fun Examples
