    I am having an issue with adding a shape (with the square). Sometimes when I add the shape, it lets me change the height and length of the square, but this morning we were adding squares and I couldn't change the size of the square, or make it a rectangle. Can you help me with this?

    Hi Dana,
    You should be able to re-size by selecting the shape and then clicking and dragging the tiny handle boxes around the outside of the shape selection. If it's not working try signing out of the app and back in and see if that corrects it.

    Is it possible to create a square with a color frame but have the inside of the box be translucent and still have the color frame show up? I tried to decrease the visibility, but it takes the frame away also.
