QDraw

Packaging for Sinclair QL Psion QDraw
QDraw is the bitmap drawing package for the Sinclair QL which Psion developed and used to create the images used in Psion Chess and Match Point.

Unlike some of the drawing packages, QDraw allows you to edit the full screen and works in both mode 4 and mode 8 drawing with a pen of varying thickness. You could also draw lines using rubber band techniques and magnify the screen.

Although there were no built in functions to draw rectangles, triangles etc, you could define a shape on screen by enclosing an area with lines. The shape could then be saved to form a library of shapes which you could fill, move around the screen, replicate the shape and drop a shadow.
