How to Draw Unfilled Square on Document (Photo)

Recommended Posts

I would like to draw a line in the shape of a square around existing content. I can draw a rectangle, but it is solid and blots out the content below. 

How can  I draw a line around existing content?

When you drag out a rectangle on the canvas (or when you select a rectangle layer which already exists in the document) you get Fill and Stroke controls on the Context toolbar. Click on the Fill swatch and choose 'None' from the dropdown panel, and click on the Stroke swatch to choose the colour for the line. Click on the wide button to the right of the Stroke swatch to display another dropdown panel where you can set the style and width of the line.
