Erase Items

In TOTAL Sketch, you can easily erase a small segment of a line, symbol, or label using the built-in eraser tool.  The eraser tools works like digital "white out" allowing you to eliminate a small segment of a line in order to place a door in the white space, for example.  To use TOTAL Sketch's eraser:

  1. While you're in a sketch in TOTAL Sketch, click the Symbols icon.

  2. Click the drop-down menu at the top, select the Other category, and click to select the Eraser symbol.

  3. Once the eraser appears in the sketch, it's attached to your cursor.  Position your cursor over the location where you want to drop it and click to place the eraser symbol. When placed, it obscures or "whites out" any symbols, lines, labels, or other sketch elements below it.
  4. From there, you can adjust or remove the eraser as necessary:
  HINT:

If you need to place several copies of the eraser throughout your sketch, enable Stamp Mode, before you select and place the eraser.  Because Stamp Mode doesn't require you to reselect the eraser, you can keep repeatedly click different areas of the sketch to place additional copies of the eraser.
