     Finally did it. I worked out a way to draw a rhombus by DRAGGING the MOUSE in ANY DIRECTION. Thought it was kind of COOL and wanted to share. Click, then drag your mouse up, down, left or right (it does not matter). Added some dimensions as well. The Rhombus is drawn by using a Rectangular Shape as a template, and then positioning the end points of the line segments in the correct positions. An addition (to perhaps add later) is rotation about either the centroid or the first drawn point. Kind of excited by this one, as most shapes need mouse click-drags in specific directions. This one is unidirectional. Enjoy. Smile and be happy. Just realized I'd reached 40 submissions. Hooray!

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
