Pencil when drawing

when drawing a rectangle the pencil on the screen has a square with it and when I hover objects I can see red squares.

Where in the help system for SketchUp free can I find the description to the squares?

The red square you see is SketchUp trying to help you snap to an edge to draw accurate lines.
