Draw a freehand shape

  1. Select Arrange > Insert > Freehand to open the Freehand dialog.
    If you are using the Sketch whiteboard-like editor theme, click on the Freehand tool (pen icon).
  2. Draw your shape with your mouse (hold the left-mouse button down to draw), then click Stop drawing to convert it to an image with a transparent background.

To create a freehand shape with a thicker line, enable the Brush checkbox and increase the slider width, then draw your freehand shape.
Use the freehand drawing tool in draw.io to markup diagrams or draw shapes with your mouse or on a tablet

While you can draw a freehand shape with the mouse, you may find it easier to diagram freehand on a tablet with a pen.
