Edit a floor plan

If you want to modify the information displayed on a floor plan, you can do so at any time. To do this, click on the thumbnail representing the plan you want to edit and make updates from the following three entry points:

  • Basic options

These options are accessible from the 'Plan' tab in the right-hand panel.

  • 'Name' allows you to rename your floor plan.
  • 'Dimensions' allows you to show or hide all the dimensions on the plan.
  • 'Area' allows you to show or hide the areas of different rooms.
  • 'Symbols (Plans details step)' allows you to show or hide symbols added in the "Indications" step.
  • 'Roof' allows you to show or hide the roof outlines.
  • 'Compass rose' allows you to show or hide the compass rose on the plan.
  • Add Symbols

Similarly to the 'Plan details' step, you have the option to add symbols to your floor plans.

  • Add and edit dimensions

You can add manual drawing or wall-to-wall dimensions to your plans. Additionally, you have the option to edit default dimensions. To do this, you can use the 'Dimensions' tool.

Adding wall-to-wall dimensions is facilitated by a guide where you must select the starting and ending points of the dimensions to be added along a vertical or horizontal axis:
