Draw a Room From Scratch
If you choose to draw a room from scratch, use the Room, Straight Wall and Arc Wall tools to create a room of any shape you desire. The classical way is to draw walls by selecting the Straight Wall tool. If your room walls have arc elements, then the Arc Wall tool is what you need.
If your room has a rectangle shape, the most convenient tool is the Room tool that immediately forms the room on the canvas. The dimensions are displayed on the fly while you are drawing. In the Preferences, you can set how you’ll see the rooms you created: 1) dimensions, 2) area or 3) dimensions and area.
