Radial Dimension Properties

The properties used to modify a Radial Dimension object are located to the right of the screen when your dimension is selected. These properties can either be adjusted right before adding the radial dimension to your landscape or after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.

Options

Description

Arrow style

The Arrow style property determines what shape of arrow to use for the endpoint of the radial dimension. To change the arrow shape, click the Arrow style drop-down menu.

Arrow size

The Arrow size property determines how large the endpoint arrow is. To change the size of the arrow, move the Arrow size slider or enter a value in the text field.

Show radius line

Use the Show Radius Line property to show or hide the line which extends from the center point to the radius point.

Show center mark

Use the Show Center Mark property to show or hide a small indicator at the center point.

Text

Description

Text

The Text property determines what appears within the radial dimension. By default, the dimension will only display the measurement, but additional text can be placed if needed. To change the text, click the small button that appears to the right of the current text.

The symbols “<>” indicate where the measurement should be displayed. For example, if a 10 foot radial dimension was added to a landscape design, and the text was “Dimension - <>”, then the text displayed would be “Dimension – 10’”.

Units

Selects which units are used for displaying the measurement.

Font

The Font property determines style of lettering that the radial dimension will use. To change the font, click the drop-down menu and select the font of your choice. Any TrueType font that is installed on your computer can be used.

Alignment

The Alignment property determines where the text is placed in relation to the radial dimension. To change the alignment, click on the drop-down menu and select the text alignment you would like to use.

Height

The Height property determines the size of each letter of text. For example, if the Height is set to four feet, then a capital letter will be approximately four feet from bottom to top. The height will vary slightly based on the Font. To change the text height, move the Height slider or enter a value in the text field.

Color

The Color property determines the text color. To change the text color, click the small color swatch that displays the current color.
