By default, drawing an object follows on its selection and choosing an editor to modify its properties.
With repetitive mode enabled, you can draw many object with the same task.
When a repetitive drawing task is started, it is not stopped after each drawn object until you run another task .
Not all tasks are repetitive, only these marked with a start are (path, free path, image, lines, polyline, polygon, triangle, rectangle, circle, ellipse, circle arc).
This mode is useful when drawing a lot of objects.
