The draw functionality is a little buggy, for example after drawing around clicking buttons will draw a line to them rather than triggering them. Also, you can do random fills on view-only patterns.
x = 11, y = 5, rule = B2ck3-ij5n78/S01e2ei3-k5ai

The next build makes selections respect VIEWONLY mode. Thanks for reporting!

I can't reproduce the drawing behaviour you're seeing. Do you have a set of steps I can try that shows the issue? Also please confirm which platform you're on.

This has now been implemented in Build 367. Thanks for the suggestion!
