Add Format Dimensions

Canvas 15's Linear, Chain, and Baseline Dimensioning tools precisely control horizontal, vertical, oblique, and perpendicular distances; measure diameter, radius, angle, area, and perimeter; and mark the centers of arcs and ovals.

Add Comments and Mark-up

Utilize Canvas 15's annotation tools to add labels or callouts to your diagrams and illustrations, complete with custom and automated options, such as single and multiple diagram line connections. And if you re-position the annotation label object, the SmartLines™ connecting it to the illustration move right along with it.

Ensure the Highest Levels of Precision

Work with very small units of measure with engineered accuracy and control. Canvas 15’s drawing engine fully supports the IEEE floating point standard used throughout the scientific, engineering, medical, and biotechnology industries. Canvas is indispensable to professionals who work with images that contain up to 32 bits of floating point data per channel.

Work within Industry Standards

Create dimension objects that fully conform to existing industry and government standards, including:

  • IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer's) floating point standard
  • ANSI (American National Standards Institute) U.S. Product and industry standards
  • DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung/German Institute for Standardization) internationally adopted standards
  • JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) standards

Customize these standard settings by editing the size of lines, gaps, text, and tolerances, modifying them for new and unique workflows, and saving them for ongoing use in similar work contexts.


Canvas 14 text editor

Do More with Text

Add professionally formatted and fully editable text to vector objects and raster images. Create multi-page text documents and technical publications using a full range of traditional text formatting, proofing, annotation, and style tools.


Work with GIS Data

Canvas 15’s optional GIS module offers a powerful set of GIS-based features and commands that support a range of GIS formats, define complex map projections, and perform advanced property operations. It's an indispensable tool for GIS professionals in the oil & gas and energy sectors, aerospace and automotive industries, education, and government.

Accentuate Your Essentials

Canvas’ proprietary SpriteEffects allow you to create lens objects to highlight specific elements of your document. Lenses are powerful containers for effects and can be used to create magnifying glasses and other viewing frames within illustration documents.

Create Dynamic Charts

Create and customize visually appealing dynamic charts and tables in a variety of formats using data inputted directly into Canvas — no need to import a static, pre-created chart from an external spreadsheet program.
