Adding a Radial Dimension

The Radial Dimension object is used to annotate a radius in the Plan view of your landscape design. Radial dimensions will not appear in the Perspective view.

To add a radial dimension to the plan view:

1.   Click the Plan tab to switch to the Plan view.

2.   Click the Add Radial Dimension button that is found near the top of the screen under the Plan Detail tab.

3.   Click the outer edge of the radius you wish to annotate.

4.   Click the center point of the radius. This step is skipped if you are measuring an existing shape that has a true radius.

5.   Click on your landscape design where you wish the length of the radius to be displayed.

In the picture below, a pool plan uses radial dimensions to illustrate its layout.

      Once the radial dimension is added to your design it can be edited as needed. See Editing Points for more information.

      All plan detail objects can only be added and viewed in the Plan view, unlike other objects that are compatible with all views. See Adding Plan Detail for more information.
