Plan View

landscape plan view button

The Plan view provides a 2D overhead view of your landscape design, and is typically the best view in which to add or edit objects. To access the Plan view, click the Plan tab near the bottom-left of the viewport (see above image). While most objects can be added or edited in either the Plan or Perspective views, Plan Detail objects can only be added while using the Plan view. For more information on Plan Detail objects, such as plant labels, notes, text, and other objects, see Adding Plan Detail.

Plan Shadows

The Plan view can be enhanced with detailed drop shadows, adding to the professional appearance of your landscape plan by providing a feeling of depth. For more details, see Plan Shadows.

Important: Plan shadows can slow down large designs on slower computers. If this is happening to you, simply turn off plan shadows until it is time to print the design or save screen shots.
