Using Reservation Symbol

You will find the extension in the form of two macros in Ungrouped elements in Applications & components.


The square reservation symbol allows you to draw using two points, representing a diagonal, a reservation symbol or an opening symbol.


The circular reservation symbol makes it possible to draw, using three points, representing the periphery of the circle, a circular reservation symbol, and a complete circular reservation symbol.


In both cases, you can move the symbol directly in the drawing, or, through the dialog window, define the type of symbol, the presence and color of a contour line, the presence and color of filling, the presence and the color of the axes as well as an offset distance.

Here are examples of editing the two macros:
