Drawing Freehand Shapes


In order to annotate your floor plan by drawing freehand shapes, perform the following steps. 

  1. To annotate the floor plan using a freehand shape, click the Draw button.

    • Click a starting point on the floor plan and draw the desired shape.

    • The shape will be complete when you click back on your starting point, when you double-click your mouse, or when you hit the Done button on the dialog box.


  1. Formatting and functions are the same as with Drawing Pre-Defined Shapes, above.

    • Drag the corners or sides to enlarge or decrease the size of the shape.

    • Click the orange button to rotate the shape.

    • Under the dialog box Style tab, you can change the look and feel of the shape.

    • Under the Transform tab, you can see the dimensions and total area of the shape, based on the scale of the floor plan.  

    • Note that even if you have not closed the shape (for example, you have drawn just three sides of a square), the Space Planning module will calculate the area of the shape assuming the end points are connected.


Note: Click the Remove button to remove the shape from the floor plan.
