How To Trace a Drawing From an Image

Our software program makes drawing a floorplan simple. But, it also gives you a lot flexibility too. For instance — you can trace a drawing from a picture you already have.

First open the image. Next, click the Adjust Position button. You should see a few control points. If the image is too large and you do not see the control points use the scroll bars (on the right hand side and bottom of the drawing area). Left mouse click on one of the small control points and drag your mouse to adjust the size. Use the corner control point to scale the images proportionally. If you click on the yellow control point you will be able to rotate the image.

After you have traced over the image click the Save button. It will save the drawing. Then you can open the file and edit/make the adjustments.
