Add Electrical Symbols

From the Electrical and Telecom stencil, drag wall switches, outlets, and other wall fixtures onto wall shapes. Release the mouse button when a red square appears, indicating that the symbol is glued to the wall. Wall fixtures automatically rotate to align with the wall and glue to the wall.

You can also drag ceiling fixture shapes, such as the Ceiling fan, onto the drawing page.

Add Dimension Lines to Walls

In the Floor Plans category, open the Dimensioning library.

Dimensioning library

Reposition the dimension lines and dimension text by dragging a control handle.

Note: To see a tip about a control handle for a selected shape, pause the pointer over the handle.

If you add a dimension to a wall, you can resize the wall by selecting the dimension shape, typing the dimension you want, and then clicking away from the dimension shape.
