Draw on Tooth Chart

In the Chart Module, click the Draw tab.

Use the Draw tab to draw freehand on the Graphical Tooth Chart. This is useful to indicate items that don't have a graphic (e.g. cracked teeth, abscesses, supernumerary teeth, lingual arch wires, other orthodontic work, etc).

It is possible to draw using the mouse, but takes some practice and a steady hand. It is much faster to draw if you are using a touch screen (e.g. on a tablet). There is no way to hide the drawings, though they can be erased. If the mouse selection is Pointer, drawing is not turned on and you can select teeth as usual.

The colors listed are those set in Definitions: Chart Graphic Colors. The currently selected color shows under the Color Changer option. To choose a color that isn't shown, click Other to open the Color window.
