Highlight Path Tool

Track and Highlight a Path

This tool is very useful for quickly highlighting outlines, roads, wires, pipes and more in a drawing. To use it you just have to select a line, and all connected line segments will be added to the highlighted path. The behavior of this tool can be configured.
The pictures below illustrates how the Highlight Path Tool works:

The selected lines, and any connected lines, are automatically highlighted with a new markup element that can later be modified or deleted.
