Adding a Shape

To add a shape to the plan view:

1.   Click the Plan tab to switch to the Plan view.

2.   Click the Add Shape button that is found near the top of the screen under the Plan Detail tab.

3.   Draw the outline of the shape by clicking the left mouse button to add points. Press the Backspace key to remove the last point added, and press the Esc key to cancel. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place at least one point and then press the Enter key.

4.   To finish drawing the shape, place the last point on top of the first point. Alternately, right-click to place the last point.

Tips:

      The steps above are only used when first adding the shape. Once the shape is added to your design it can be edited as needed. See Editing Points for more information.

      If the shape is closed, then it will be filled by default. To show just the shape’s outline, set the Transparency property to 100.

      All plan detail objects can only be added and viewed in the Plan view, unlike other objects that are compatible with all views. See Adding Plan Detail for more information.
