Canvas / Image Area

The cut sheet is shown in the canvas area. When the highlight tool is selected (and is by default), using the mouse to click and drag across the cut sheet will draw a new highlight. The canvas area works much like other graphics applications today. If the highlight is double clicked, it opens the Highlight Properties dialog box.
