Menu Controls

by Nicky Morrogh Floor Plan Builder

Once you understand the camera controls the next step is to learn the menu tools so that you create great 3D plans in the Builder.

Main Menu Functions:

After the first set of controls we have the Spacing Tools Menu:

The next section contains the Alignment Tools

The Bottom Menu contains a number of key tools:

If you cannot see the lower menu you need to adjust the Zoom settings in Chrome to 80% or less.

Once you have reduced the zoom the lower menu will appear.

Top menu includes the Event Description, Capacity, New Plan Wizard, Share and the Help Section, Theme Switch and Settings.

The key point to remember is that to perform any action whether it is move, rotate, duplicate or delete you need to select the objects using the select tool. Objects are selected with the Select Tool (Shortcut = S) , or CTRL + A (Select All) or by double clicking on the object. To select multiple objects you can hold the CTRL Key & Double Click.

All selected objects are highlighted yellow and a summary is displayed in the lower right corner of the builder.

Floor Plan Builder is unlike other diagramming software in that you create diagrams in 3D rather than in 2D. This takes a little practice but once you have mastered the builder you can create realistic diagrams fast. A list of shortcut keys is in the Help section in the top right.

Please note as we release new versions some menu items may move or change position.
