With Encercle Draft, you can create circles and other shapes containing numbers up to 999999. Here’s how it works: hold shift and type the number of digits, followed by a number. If you want the number 25, hold shift, type 2 followed by 25. If you want the number 250, hold shift, type 3 followed by 250. You can also type letters, periods, slashes, hyphens, question marks and exclamation points. Create an inverse white-on-black effect using your application’s Bold feature. Easily change shapes by selecting a different font style from your application’s font menu. Encercle Draft is available in the following shapes.

  • Circle
  • Square
  • Box (wide rectangle)
  • Box with rounded ends (tab)
  • Diamond
  • Circle inside a diamond
  • Hexagon
  • Hexagon rotated
  • Octagon
  • Triangle up
  • Triangle down
  • Triangle right
  • Triangle left
  • Quote bubble with left tail
  • Quote bubble with right tail
  • Quote bubble with no tail
  • Cloud (thought bubble)

Encercle Draft uses OpenType technology. Most current graphic design applications support basic OpenType features but there are a few exceptions including AutoCAD, SketchUp, Solidworks and Canva. Encercle Draft will work in Affinity, Inkscape, GIMP, Adobe apps (not Photoshop Elements), Microsoft apps (not Powerpoint), Sibelius and more. Encercle Draft includes a PDF manual with examples. There’s also an advanced feature which allows you to create solid-colored backgrounds. For a thicker, sans-serif style, check out Encercle Sans. For more complex layered effects with a different selection of typefaces and shapes, check out Numbers with Rings.
