Menu and panel buttons

2 – Bring up the panel with tools to add parts of the building (e.g. walls), or tools that add auxiliary objects such as guide lines or dimensions. The set of tools depends on the currently activated view, and on the edition of the software. The Pro edition has more tools. For more details, read the 2D Floor Plan view or 2D Elevation view section.

3 – Open or close the Library panel that includes the object and material libraries and the Project Tree.

4 – Open or close the Inspector.

5 – Open the 2D Floor Plan view.

6 – Open the 2D Elevation view. (Pro edition only)

7 – Open the 3D view.

Note that on a narrow screen, the switch between 2D and 3D views may be displayed as a single button. A tap on this button opens another view. In the Pro edition, the 2D view will open either the floor plan or 2D Elevation view depending on which of them was open the most recently. Long-press on the button to have all three options available.
