With Encercle, 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 is available in the following shapes:
- Box (wide rectangle)
- Box with rounded ends (tab)
- Circle inside a diamond
- Hexagon rotated
- 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 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 will work in Affinity, Inkscape, GIMP, Adobe apps (not Photoshop Elements), Microsoft apps (not Powerpoint), Sibelius and more.
Encercle includes a PDF manual with examples. There’s also an advanced feature which allows you to create solid-colored backgrounds.
