Adding a Column

A large variety of columns is included with Realtime Landscaping Plus, and can be easily modified to fit your needs.

To add a column:

1.   Click the Add Column button, which is found near the top of the screen under the Building tab.

2.   Click the picture of the default column that appears to the right of the screen, and then select the column you would like to use from the menu that appears.

3.   Click on your design where you want the column to be placed. Hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking if you wish to place more than one column.

The following is an example of two columns used in a front porch:

Tips:

      Column placement can be difficult if grid snap is enabled because your column will move to the grid intersections as you attempt to add it. You can toggle the grid snapping off by pressing Ctrl + G on your keyboard. For more information, see Snap Settings.

      Columns can be scaled and stretched to change their shape; for more information see Scaling Objects and Rotating Objects.

      The material of your columns can be changed to wood, stone, or any of several hundred other materials. For more information, see Editing Materials.
