Hmm. For the time being the software does not support shapes as such.  
It was mainly designed for basic Euclidian geometry (points, straight  
lines and circles). I initially wanted it to replace the ageing (and  
on ly rnning in classic) Cabri Géometre. I shelved it when I  
discovered Geogebra an others that are far better...

I have posted a version and the source on my homepage: http:// 

For the time being the application is bloated: the various images are  
sometimes in triplicate (I have yet to optimize this)

To mark a file, drag the pdf on the application. It will then ask you  
if you want to put that pdf as a background to a drawing (I'd use the  
center option). Once this is done, you can add the marks by adding  
points and labelling using the "M" tool.

Any comments are welcome...

Otherwise to do what WARM2 might understand, one could use Sketch.app  
and expand it... I'll have a look into it, but it will have to wait a  
bit: I have quite a few exam papers to mark :-(
