Draws a curve that approximates the path drawn with the mouse. You can determine the precision with which the curve is adapted to the freehand sketch by setting the minimum length (increment) of the line segments. Short line segments allow for greater accuracy, but can significantly increase the size of the data.

  1. Choose Application properties from the Settings menu or press the key combination CTRL+ALT+A.

  2. In the Documents tab of the Application Properties dialog, click on the Drawing Editor tab and specify the value of the Resolution freehand drawing parameter.

  3. Click Ok.
