Press the Draw Outline button to delete the existing outline (if any) and draw a new outline by left-clicking the mouse at one or more points on in the editor panel. When you are done entering points, right-click the mouse over any point to automatically connect the last point entered to the starting point of the outline.

Press the Edit Outline button to edit the existing outline. In edit mode an existing outline vertex can be moved by dragging it with the left mouse button. A new vertex can be inserted after a selected vertex by holding the SHIFT key and dragging the vertex to the desired location. To delete an existing vertex, hold the CONTROL key and left-click the vertex. To exit edit mode, right-click anywhere in the editor panel.
