    In other words, Freeform is a stripped-down version of MacDraw, MacDraft, MacFlow, Org Plus, Canvas, SuperPaint, and other Macintosh drawing programs that fit on floppy diskettes forty years ago.

    Brian: Stripped down? No. It has: vector scaling support, connection lines, URL linking, 3D object support, cloud sharing, collaboration and presentation support and more.

    Thanks Gary. Brilliant tutorial. I am using FF to create a custom planner of an upcoming trip. It is working great but I have two questions please:
    1) Is there a way to add a web link to an image or shape. The only way I can find to add a link is to use Insert>Link but this is restricted to simply entering a url which can be clicked to view the site?
    2) Any shape can be previewed by pressing the space bar. However, when objects are Grouped they will not preview with the space bar?
    Thank you

    Michael: I don't think you can add a link to a shape. As for number 2, not sure what you are asking. Yes?

    Thanks Gary 1) Understood. Perhaps this will follow as the App develops. 2) If I select e.g. an image and press the space bar, the image is previewed nicely in a preview box. However, if I group the image with, for instance, a text box then when the Group is selected the preview function with the space bar does not seem to work. Wondered if I'm missing something. Thanks Michael

    Michael: Yes, that does seem how to be how it works, sorry. I didn't read number 2 in your original comment as a question. I suppose use grouping to move things and then ungroup to get the Quick Look function back.
