> Edraw How-To > Use Dimension Shapes in Floor Plan
Posted by Janice | 02/21/2022
Dimension Shapes are the most common used symbols in the floor plan. Edraw developers make the greatest efforts in designing easy-to-use dimension shapes.

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.
