Maths shapes

Postby PeteTheOAP » Tue Apr 21, 2015 9:45 pm

Hi,
I have absolutely no experience with 'Draw' and have no artistic ability whatso ever!
What I need is someone to give (simple) steps to create (say) various triangles :
(Obtuse, Acute and right angled), and other shapes, with appropiate annotation.
I really have read the Help file..... but cant 'geddit' even though I was an IT professional!
Oh, I'm 79 now, so a bit slow on the uptake..
Thanks

You should use the extension "Dmaths".

Dmaths looks really powerful; I'll have to give it a try.

But you can do simple stuff with OO Draw alone. Sometimes it's better to get familiar with the base tool before you tackle complex add-ons.

Here's a simple OO Draw template I've used for this sort of diagram:
