alt To draw a rectangle:
  1. On the left toolbar select the Rectangle tool.
  2. Click at the desired top-left corner of the crectangle.
  3. Specify the dimensions by moving the mouse.
  4. Click to end.

When the Rectangle tool is selected, use the Property Bar to specify the width and layer. A rectangle drawn with the rectangle tool consists of four traces connected to each other. To change the dimensions after the rectangle is drawn, change the length of the traces.
